Extend logging of ipbanner

Dear Dynamicweb,

 

We have some solutions where users are blocked now and then, and it is hard for us to determine the exact reason. So it will be great to have the identified string logged in the file placed in: Log/IpBanner

 

Best regards,

Anders

We have seen similar situations and debugging of the reason is very complicated if not impossible.

Thank you,

Adrian

Dear Dynamicweb,

 

Can this feature be added as we see these issues a lot?

 

Best regards,

Anders

Yeah

You can, kind of - I'll look into better logging. Have a bit of limitation due to the logging api that has been abstracted into hell and beyond, so it cannot be changed without 7 university degrees and a rewrite of all of DW... I f***ing hate developers. :-).

Anyways - when in monitoring/event viewer, you can see bans using  the "Security/IpBanner" - some bans are easy - IP posted too many times. Others, like "Match on XYZ" is secret.

 

But if you change the event viewer to look at "Security/SqlInjection" you get a bit more information - like the one below:

In this example the querystring contained ?file=/**/cOnvert... etc.
