FEDORA-EPEL-2017-fc9588cf24 created by orion 7 years ago for Fedora EPEL 7

Fix fail2ban-regex with journal broken in 0.9.6-1.

Update to 0.9.6:

  • Misleading add resp. enable of (already available) jail in database, that induced a subsequent error: last position of log file will be never retrieved (gh-795)
  • Fixed a distribution related bug within testReadStockJailConfForceEnabled (e.g. test-cases faults on Fedora, see gh-1353)
  • Fixed pythonic filters and test scripts (running via wrong python version, uses "fail2ban-python" now);
  • Fixed test case "testSetupInstallRoot" for not default python version (also using direct call, out of virtualenv);
  • Fixed ambiguous wrong recognized date pattern resp. its optional parts (see gh-1512);
  • FIPS compliant, use sha1 instead of md5 if it not allowed (see gh-1540)
  • Monit config: scripting is not supported in path (gh-1556)
  • filter.d/apache-modsecurity.conf
    • Fixed for newer version (one space, gh-1626), optimized: non-greedy catch-all replaced for safer match, unneeded catch-all anchoring removed, non-capturing
  • filter.d/asterisk.conf
    • Fixed to match different asterisk log prefix (source file: method:)
  • filter.d/dovecot.conf
    • Fixed failregex ignores failures through some not relevant info (gh-1623)
  • filter.d/ignorecommands/apache-fakegooglebot
    • Fixed error within apache-fakegooglebot, that will be called with wrong python version (gh-1506)
  • filter.d/assp.conf
    • Extended failregex and test cases to handle ASSP V1 and V2 (gh-1494)
  • filter.d/postfix-sasl.conf
    • Allow for having no trailing space after 'failed:' (gh-1497)
  • filter.d/vsftpd.conf
    • Optional reason part in message after FAIL LOGIN (gh-1543)
  • filter.d/sendmail-reject.conf
    • removed mandatory double space (if dns-host available, gh-1579)
  • filter.d/sshd.conf

    • recognized "Failed publickey for" (gh-1477);
    • optimized failregex to match all of "Failed any-method for ... from <HOST>" (gh-1479)
    • eliminated possible complex injections (on user-name resp. auth-info, see gh-1479)
    • optional port part after host (see gh-1533, gh-1581)
  • New Actions:

    • action.d/npf.conf for NPF, the latest packet filter for NetBSD
  • New Filters:

    • filter.d/mongodb-auth.conf for MongoDB (document-oriented NoSQL database engine) (gh-1586, gh-1606 and gh-1607)
  • DateTemplate regexp extended with the word-end boundary, additionally to word-start boundary

  • Introduces new command "fail2ban-python", as automatically created symlink to python executable, where fail2ban currently installed (resp. its modules are located):
    • allows to use the same version, fail2ban currently running, e.g. in external scripts just via replace python with fail2ban-python: diff -#!/usr/bin/env python +#!/usr/bin/env fail2ban-python
    • always the same pickle protocol
    • the same (and also guaranteed available) fail2ban modules
    • simplified stand-alone install, resp. stand-alone installation possibility via setup (like gh-1487) is getting closer
  • Several test cases rewritten using new methods assertIn, assertNotIn
  • New forward compatibility method assertRaisesRegexp (normally python >= 2.7). Methods assertIn, assertNotIn, assertRaisesRegexp, assertLogged, assertNotLogged are test covered now
  • Jail configuration extended with new syntax to pass options to the backend (see gh-1408), examples:
    • backend = systemd[journalpath=/run/log/journal/machine-1]
    • backend = systemd[journalfiles="/run/log/journal/machine-1/system.journal, /run/log/journal/machine-1/user.journal"]
    • backend = systemd[journalflags=2]
