Hi Guys,

Have just setup the S650 any ideas on how to generate malware traffic without installing malware internally?



I have this problem too.

I've written an OSX application that acts as a web-crawler. I point it at a single web-site and it takes off (with certain control paramaters). If you point it to a questionable starting point, within minutes your S-Series will start showing all sorts of malware and other L4TM stats.
Again the application runs on Mac OSX so if you have a Mac and want the app you can email me at [email protected].

you mention that you have a site that can provide testing capabilities for IronPort. I do not have a MAC, do you know of another method whereby I can generate malware and other L4TM stats so that I can confirm my device is working.

You should be able to just telnet to a forbidden site. Such as:

telnet 80

This will create a TCP socket with this malware server and the L4TM will pick it up and block / monitor it accordingly.

Since you are not using a browser, you are safe.
