DESCRIPTION - LaBrea::Tarpit::DShield

Module provides mail support to parse and send reports to

  $rv = chk_config(\%config);
  $rv = mail2_Q(\%config,\$message,[subject]);
  $rv = move2_Q(\$config);
  $rv = deliver2_DShield(\%config);
  $rv = process_Q(\%config);
$rv = chk_config(\%config);

Check and adjust default configuration parameters.

Check for valid e-mail address formats and add leading ./ to DShield file path if needed.

  input:        \%config
  returns:      false on success
                error msg on failure

  Note: UserID is checked in move2_Q

  my $config = {
    'DShield'   => 'tmp/DShield.cache', # path/to/file
    'To'        => '',  # or
    'From'      => '',
    'Reply-To'  => '',  # optional
  # optional
    'Obfuscate' => 'complete or partial',
  # optional - ignore reports about this netblock
  #     when generating DShield reports
    'SrcIgnore' => ['',''],
  # either one or more working SMTP server's
    'smtp'      => ',',
  # or a sendmail compatible mail transport command
    'sendmail'  => '/usr/lib/sendmail -t -oi',
 ############ used only by "move2_Q"
    'UserID'    => '0',                 # DShield UserID

Called internally by all routines, it's error codes are returned by them.

$rv = mail2_Q(\%config,\$message,[subject]);
  Queue a mail message as specified by 
  To, From, Reply-To, etc...

  subject is optional

  Must run 'process_Q' or 'deliver2_DShield'
  to actually mail the message
$rv = move2_Q(\$config,$debug);

Prepare the DShield file for mailing and rename as a Que's file in preparation for mailing.

UserID, From, To, [Reply-To], and Subject are added to the file and it is renamed qF_unique_string.

No queue file is generated if the list of connections are empty. This could happen when using the SrcIgnore option.

  input:        \%config,$debug
  output:       false on success or no action
                true = error message

  NOTE:         do not use debug mode with the mail 
                address pointing to DShield, 
                point it to yourself

  $debug = missing      normal operation
  $debug = 0            normal operation
  $debug = 1            do not delete cache file
  $debug = 2            do not rename q-file
$rv = deliver2_DShield(\%config,$debug);

Alias for process_Q

$rv = process_Q(\%config,$debug);

Attempts to deliver messages in queue using the configured mail agent. Failed attempts are left in the queue, successfull ones are deleted.

  input:        \%config
  returns:      last error message
                or false on success

  NOTE:         do not use debug mode with the mail 
                address pointing to the real target, 
                point it to yourself

  $debug = missing      normal operation
  $debug = 0            normal operation
  $debug = 1            generate mail file suffixed
                        with .stmp or .sendmail as
                        appropriate instead of sending
                        real mail
  $debug = 2            do not delete input Q file
