I am using Version 9.0


I have set the following path: Firewall > Settings > Security > Enable Attack Detection to the maximum 86,400 seconds (24 hrs).

When an intruder tries to attack and I look at the following path: Firewall > Banned Hosts it states they are only banned for 20864 seconds.

Could anyone tell me why the difference.



When using version 8.7 in the Attack Detector section, I had the parameters set at 3000 / 12 / 0 / 1 / 6 / 256 and then click on activate and restart the computer and this banned all attacks permanently.



Does anyone know if setting the following path with do the same: Firewall > Settings > Security > Enable Attack Detection > Detect Port Scans (Configure) and setting the parameters the same will ban all these attacks permanently?



If not what can I change?



All help much appreciated

Hi,

I will kindly ask you to perform the following instructions:

1. Open BullGuard and go to Firewall menu > Firewall Log.
2. Right-click in the screen on the IP that you want to ban and select Ban Remote Host - Ban Permanently option.
3. Restart your computer or the BullGuard application.

Already already tried this Alin but it does not work. These IPs are still trying to attack.

Yes they do but the attacks keep coming and this section is rapidly filling up. I now have 54 of them (all from 2 IP's)

Each time these 2 IP's try to attack 2 more boxes appear with 'Blocked For 20864 sec.'

After this period they will turn to 'Permanently Blocked' but then a few hours later it will happen again.

I had no problems with Version 8.7 but this has been happening since upgrading to V9.0.

I think this is the worst upgrade bullguard has ever done. Just bug after bug.

Another thing that doesn't work is that on the section 'Main > System Status > Updates" there is a problem

On the notification level where it says 'Show A Notification For Every Update' I have this checked but I never get a notification.
