Fixed In:

Opened: Jan 25, 2019
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Autodos daemon history file is created even when there is no vector enabled in a DoS profile.

Impact

Disk space is being unnecessarily used.

Conditions

An empty DoS profile is attached to a virtual server without enabling any vector in the profile.

Workaround

Make sure each DoS profile attached to virtual server has at least one vector enabled.

Fix Information

Attaching an empty DoS profile without an enabled vector does not create a history file for that virtual server in the autodos daemon.
