Description Martin Blapp 2005-06-05 08:37:58 UTC
Im the maintainer of swinog blacklists http://antispam.imp.ch/05-uribl.php http://antispam.imp.ch/06-dnsbl.php and we have also our own pyzor server running. It would make sense to be able to specify more than one digest server, as this makes it possible to generate combo rules which could give you a much more precise spam possibility. Currently I've solved it with just copying the pyzor bits and change the name, but it would rock if I just could add more than one pyzor service like I query more than ons URIBL. Whay do others think about this idea ? Should I make a patch for this ? Martin

Triage: Martin, I would think that if you could make a patch for this, it could then be tested to see if there's any benefit. Without that patch to test, it's hard to tell. My question, knowing the bare minimum about pyzor, dcc, and razor (or maybe slightly less than the bare minimum): what would be different about two servers that would give more useful results than just the one? I'm assuming that you pump your own data into your own pyzor server. How does that data differ from what everyone else is using, and how could others best gain the same benefits?

Hi, > I'm assuming that you pump your own data into your own pyzor server. How does > that data differ from what everyone else is using, and how could others best > gain the same benefits? Thats correct. I'm using our own pyzord server mostly for whitelisting digest checks. If a customer reports a false positive with digest checks (DCC, PYZOR, RAZOR) we can whitelist this FP just for us. We have wrapped all checks to look also in the whitelist, and don't count them if a checksum is whitelisted. This really helps us to avoid FP caused by digest checks I'll see if I can provide a patch for this. Also for the pyzor whitelist feature which is great ! Martin

It is not eas easy as I thought. It would be possible to make it look like this: But this will break reporting. Any idea how to make it look like URIBL configs ? ifplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::Pyzor full PYZOR_CHECK eval:check_pyzor('pyzer', '--homedir /spamassassin/pyzor/', 5, 10) describe PYZOR_CHECK Listed in Pyzor (http://pyzor.sf.net/) tflags PYZOR_CHECK net full CUSTPYZOR_CHECK eval:check_pyzor('imppyzer', '--homedir /spamassassin/pyzorcust/', 5, 10) describe CUSTPYZOR_CHECK Listed in custom Pyzor (http://xxx/) tflags CUSTPYZOR_CHECK net endif

fwiw, since razor only has 1 set of servers to query, this ticket is really about dcc and pyzor. I don't know enough about those to determine how easy it is to specify/change the default servers that they query. If it's straightforward, such as a commandline change, then it should be really easy to update the plugins to deal with it.
