CWP Outbound Packets
« on: April 09, 2020, 12:06:12 PM »
Guys, what's going on here?
I first spotted this issue on a NAT VPS but have since seen similar activity on other VPS' with dedicated IPs. On the NAT one the packets were sourced from root, cwpsrv and amavis.
Why are systems attempting to contact cloudmark/proofpoint via a dedicated port?

Does appear to be amavis related and I'm very concerned that it runs under root privileges, in some cases - on another server..

Is this a known (stealth) activity?

Revenge is sweet - got some of my own medicine. ;)
Wouldn't be so bad but thought I'd removed clamd/clamav/amavis/spamassassin on the ny and cwp instances. Speaking of which, the au instance keeps saying it needs updated, even though I've done it twice! (python3 reinstall required.) Grr, wish the clamav maintainers would get their act together.

AntiSpam/AntiVirus (recommended):    ClamAV, Amavis & Spamassassin, Requires 1Gb+ RAM
Need an option to NOT use/install amavis, nor install Razor.
Don't need more bloat in the system!

This stealth method of connecting to cloudmark is unacceptable (what's wrong with port 443?) and people really should boycott its' use.
