Generating L4 Traffic

Hi Guys,

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

Cheers

MalWare Generating Tool

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 dalton@ironport.com.

thanks

Re: Generating L4 Traffic

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.

Re: Generating L4 Traffic

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

telnet ieplugin.com 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.
