#
# Custom regex matching can be added to this file without it being overwritten
# by csf upgrades. The format is slightly different to regex.pm to cater for
# additional parameters. You need to specify the log file that needs to be
# scanned for log line matches in csf.conf under CUSTOMx_LOG. You can scan up
# to 9 custom logs (CUSTOM1_LOG .. CUSTOM9_LOG)
#
# The regex matches in this file will supercede the matches in regex.pm
#
# Example:
# if (($globlogs{CUSTOM1_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /^\S+\s+\d+\s+\S+ \S+ pure-ftpd: \(\?\@(\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+)\) \[WARNING\] Authentication failed for user/)) {
# return ("Failed myftpmatch login from",$1,"myftpmatch","5","20,21","1");
# }
#
# The return values from this example are as follows:
#
# "Failed myftpmatch login from" = text for custom failure message
# $1 = the offending IP address
# "myftpmatch" = a unique identifier for this custom rule, must be alphanumeric and have no spaces
# "5" = the trigger level for blocking
# "20,21" = the ports to block the IP from in a comma separated list, only used if LF_SELECT enabled. To specify the protocol use 53;udp,53;tcp
# "1" = n/temporary (n = number of seconds to temporarily block) or 1/permanant IP block, only used if LF_TRIGGER is disabled
# NginX security rules trigger (Default: 4 errors bans for 24 hours)
# Catch ip that attempts to access a URL that is forbidden by NginX rules
if (($globlogs{CUSTOM1_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*access forbidden by rule, client: (\S+).*/)) {
return ("NGINX Security rule triggered from",$1,"nginx_security","4","80,443","86400");
}
# NginX 404 errors (Default: 4 errors bans for 24 hours)
# Catch ip that accesses non-existant files and directories
if (($globlogs{CUSTOM1_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*No such file or directory\), client: (\S+),.*/)) {
return ("NGINX Security rule triggered from",$1,"nginx_404s","4","80,443","86400");
}
#Trying to download htaccess or htpasswd (Default: 1 error bans for 24 hours)
if (($globlogs{CUSTOM1_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*\.(htpasswd|htaccess).*client: (\S+),.*GET)/) {
return ("Trying to download .ht files",$2,"nginx_htfiles","1","80,443","86400");
}
# Wordpress fail2ban plugin (Default: 5 errors bans for 24 hours)
if (($globlogs{SYSLOG_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*Authentication attempt for unknown user .* from (.*)\n/)) {
return ("Wordpress unknown user from",$1,"fail2ban_unknownuser","2","80,443","86400");
}
# Wordpress fail2ban plugin (Default: 2 errors bans for 24 hours)
if (($globlogs{SYSLOG_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*Blocked user enumeration attempt from (.*)\n/)) {
return ("WordPress user enumeration attempt from",$1,"fail2ban_userenum","2","80,443","86400");
}
# Wordpress fail2ban plugin (Default: 2 errors bans for 24 hours)
if (($globlogs{SYSLOG_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*Pingback error .* generated from (.*)\n/)) {
return ("WordPress pingback error",$1,"fail2ban_pingback","2","80,443","86400");
}
# Wordpress fail2ban plugin (Default: 2 errors bans for 24 hours)
if (($globlogs{SYSLOG_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*Spammed comment from (.*)\n/)) {
return ("WordPress spam comments from",$1,"fail2ban_spam","2","80,443","86400");
}
# Wordpress fail2ban plugin (Default: 2 errors bans for 24 hours)
if (($globlogs{SYSLOG_LOG}{$lgfile}) and ($line =~ /.*XML-RPC multicall authentication failure (.*)\n/)) {
return ("WordPress XML-RPC multicall fail from",$1,"fail2ban_xmlrpc","5","80,443","86400");
}
# If the matches in this file are not syntactically correct for perl then lfd
# will fail with an error. You are responsible for the security of any regex
# expressions you use. Remember that log file spoofing can exploit poorly

Thank you for those rules! I will try it on my dev server probably next week!

Since i'm not a "regex master", I will probably not be able to help you or create new rules, but I will be happy to test those rules on my dev server and if everything works fine, I will use them in production...
