CHANGELOG

3.3.0 (2024-03-01)

Configuration

  • Add new optional configuration parameters for intelmq.bots.collectors.stomp.collector and intelmq.bots.outputs.stomp.output (PR#2408 by Jan Kaliszewski):
  • auth_by_ssl_client_certificate (Boolean, default: true; if false then ssl_client_certificate and ssl_client_certificate_key will be ignored);
  • username (STOMP authentication login, default: "guest"; to be used only if auth_by_ssl_client_certificate is false);
  • password (STOMP authentication passcode, default: "guest"; to be used only if auth_by_ssl_client_certificate is false).
  • Add the possibility to set the ssl_ca_certificate configuration parameter for intelmq.bots.collectors.stomp.collector and/or intelmq.bots.outputs.stomp.output to an empty string - which means that the SSL machinery used for STOMP communication will attempt to load the system’s default CA certificates (PR#2414 by Jan Kaliszewski).

  • intelmq.lib.exceptions.InvalidKey: Add optional parameter additional_text (PR#2398 by Sebastian Wagner).
  • Change the way we discover bots to allow easy extending based on the entry point name. (PR#2413 by Kamil Mankowski)
  • intelmq.lib.mixins: Add a new class, StompMixin (defined in a new submodule: stomp), which provides certain common STOMP-bot-specific operations, factored out from intelmq.bots.collectors.stomp.collector and intelmq.bots.outputs.stomp.output (PR#2408 and PR#2414 by Jan Kaliszewski).
  • intelmq.lib.upgrades: Replace deprecated instances of url2fqdn experts by the new url expert in runtime configuration (PR#2432 by Sebastian Wagner).
  • intelmq.lib.bot: Ensure closing log files on reloading (PR#2435 by Kamil Mankowski).
  • AMQP Pipeline: fix SSL context to pointing to create a client-side connection that verifies the server (PR by Kamil Mankowski).
  • Only load the config once when starting intelmqctl (which makes IntelMQ API calls take less time) (PR#2444 by DigitalTrustCenter).

Development

  • Makefile: Add codespell and test commands (PR#2425 by Sebastian Wagner).

  • Variable _common_keys is moved out of the class.
  • _dict_dict_to_obj_list is introduced, for converting a string-to-dict mapping into a list of dicts with the previous key as an attribute of the dict; this can be useful for preventing issues where, when feeding the data into aggregating tools, you'd end up with many more fields than necessary, e.g vulns.CVE-2010-0001.cvss, CVE-2010-0002.cvss etc.
  • _get_first to get the first item from a list, with NoValueException raised on empty lists.
  • _get_first_hostname to handle the first valid FQDN from a list of hostnames for hostnames in the Shodan banner, if there is one, and gives NoValueException otherwise.

  • Fix Autoshun Feed URL (#1325).
  • Add parameters name and provider to intelmq/etc/feeds.yaml, docs/Feeds.md and intelmq/bots/BOTS (#1321).
  • Add SECURITY.md file.

Packaging

  • Change the maintainer from Sasche Wilde to Sebastian Wagner (#1320).

Tests

  • intelmq.tests.lib.test_bot: Skip test_logging_level_other on python 3.7 because of unclear behavior related to copies of loggers (#1269).
  • intelmq.tests.bots.collectors.rt.test_collector: Remove test because the REST interface of the instance has been closed (see also https://github.com/CZ-NIC/python-rt/issues/28).

Tools

  • intelmqctl check: Shows more detailed information on orphaned queues.
  • intelmqctl:
  • Correctly determine the status of bots started with intelmqctl run.
  • Fix output of errors during bot status determination, making it compatible to IntelMQ Manager.
  • check subcommand: Show bot ID for messages also in JSON output.
  • run [bot-id] process -m [message] works also with bots without a configured source pipeline (#1307).

Contrib

  • elasticsearch/elasticmapper: Add tlp field (#1308).
  • feeds-config-generator/intelmq_gen_feeds_conf:
  • Add parameters to write resulting configuration directly to files (#1321).
  • Handle collector's feed.name and feed.provider (#1314).

Known issues

  • Bots started with IntelMQ-Manager stop when the webserver is restarted (#952).
  • Tests: capture logging with context manager (#1342).
  • stomp collector bot constantly uses 100% of CPU (#1364).

1.1.0 (2018-09-05)

  • Support for Python 3.3 has been dropped in IntelMQ and some dependencies of it. Python 3.3 reached its end of life and Python 3.4 or newer is a hard requirement now.
  • The list of feeds docs/Feeds.md has now a machine-readable equivalent YAML file in intelmq/etc/feeds.yaml A tool to convert from yaml to md has been added.

Tools

  • intelmq_gen_feeds_docs added to bin directory, allows generating the Feeds.md documentation file from feeds.yaml
  • intelmq_gen_docs merges both intelmq_gen_feeds_docs and intelmq_gen_harm_docs in one file and automatically updates the documentation files.

intelmqctl

  • intelmqctl start prints the bot's last error messages if the bot failed to start (#1021).
  • intelmqctl start message "is running" is printed every time. (Until now, it wasn't said when a bot was just starting.)
  • intelmqctl start/stop/restart/reload/status now has a "--group" flag which allows you to specify the group of the bots that should be influenced by the command.
  • intelmqctl check checks for defaults.conf completeness if the shipped file from the package can be found.
  • intelmqctl check shows errors for non-importable bots.
  • intelmqctl list bots -q only prints the IDs of enabled bots.
  • intelmqctl list queues-and-status prints both queues and bots statuses (so that it can be used in eg. intelmq-manager).
  • intelmqctl run parameter for showing a sent message.
  • intelmqctl run if message is sent to a non-default path, it is printed out.
  • intelmqctl restart bug fix; returned some half-nonsense, now returns return state of start and stop operation in a list (#1226).
  • intelmqctl check: New parameter --no-connections to prevent the command from making connections e.g. to the redis pipeline.s
  • intelmqctl list queues: don't display named paths among standard queues.
  • The process status test failed if the PATH did not include the bot executables and the which command failed. Then the proccess's command line could not be compared correctly. The fix warns of this and adds a new status 'unknown' (#1297).

Contrib

  • tool feeds-config-generator to automatically generate the collector and parser runtime and pipeline configurations.
  • malware_name_mapping: Download and convert tool for malware family name mapping has been added.
  • Added a systemd script which creates systemd units for bots (#953).
  • contrib/cron-jobs/update-asn-data, contrib/cron-jobs/update-geoip-data, contrib/cron-jobs/update-tor-nodes: Errors produce proper output.

Core

  • lib/bot
  • use SIGTERM instead of SIGINT to stop bots (#981).
  • Bots can specify a static method check(parameters) which can perform individual checks specific to the bot. These functions will be called by intelmqctl check if the bot is configured with the given parameters
  • top level bot parameters (description, group, module, name) are exposed as members of the class.
  • The parameter feed for collectors is deprecated for 2.0 and has been replaced by the more consistent name (#1144).
  • bug: allow path parameter for CollectorBot class.
  • Handle errors better when the logger could not be initialized.
  • ParserBot:
    • For the csv parsing methods, ParserBot.csv_params is now used for all these methods.
    • ParserBot.parse_csv_dict now saves the field names in ParserBot.csv_fieldnames.
    • ParserBot.parse_csv_dict now saves the raw current line in ParserBot.current_line.
    • ParserBot.recover_line_csv_dict now uses the raw current line.
  • lib/message:
  • Subitems in fields of type JSONDict (see below) can be accessed directly. E.g. you can do: event['extra.foo'] = 'bar' event['extra.foo'] # gives 'bar' It is still possible to set and get the field as whole, however this may be removed or changed in the future: event['extra'] = '{"foo": "bar"}' event['extra'] # gives '{"foo": "bar"}' "Old" bots and configurations compatible with 1.0.x do still work. Also, the extra field is now properly exploded when exporting events, analogous to all other fields. The in operator works now for both - the old and the new - behavior.
  • Message.add: The parameter overwrite accepts now three different values: True, False and None (new). True: An existing value will be overwritten False: An existing value will not be overwritten (previously an exception has been raised when the value was given). None (default): If the value exists an KeyExists exception is thrown (previously the same as False). This allows shorter code in the bots, as an 'overwrite' configuration parameter can be directly passed to the function.
  • The message class has now the possibility to return a default value for non-existing fields, see Message.set_default_value.
  • Message.get behaves the same like Message.__getitem__ (#1305).
  • Add RewindableFileHandle to utils making handling of CSV files more easy (optionally)
  • lib/pipeline:
  • you may now define more than one destination queues path the bot should pass the message to, see Pipelines (#1088, #1190).
  • the special path "_on_error" can be used to pass messages to different queues in case of processing errors (#1133).
  • lib/harmonization: Accept AS prefix for ASN values (automatically stripped).
  • added intelmq.VAR_STATE_PATH for variable state data of bots.

Bots

  • Removed print statements from various bots.
  • Replaced various occurrences of self.logger.error() + self.stop() with raise ValueError.

2016/06/18

  • improvements in pipeline:
  • PipelineFactory to give possibility to easily add a new broker (Redis, ZMQ, etc..)
  • Splitter feature: if this option is enable, will split the events in source queue to multiple destination queues
  • add different messages support:
  • the system is flexible to define a new type of message like 'tweet' without change anything in bot.py, pipeline.py. Just need to add a new class in message.py and harmonization.conf
  • add harmonization support
  • in harmonization.conf is possible to define the fields of a specific message in json format.
  • the harmonization.py has data types witch contains sanitize and validation methods that will make sure that the values are correct to be part of an event.
  • Error Handling
  • multiple parameters in configuration which gives possibility to define how bot will handle some errors. Example of parameters:
  • error_procedure - retry or pass in case of error
  • error_retry_delay - time in seconds to retry
  • error_max_retries - number of retries
  • error_log_message - log or not the message in error log
  • error_log_exception - log or not the exception in error log
  • error_dump_message - log or not the message in dump log to be fixed and re-insert in pipeline
  • Exceptions
  • custom exceptions for IntelMQ
  • Defaults configurations
  • new configuration file to specify the default parameters which will be applied to all bots. Bots can overwrite the configurations.
  • New bots/feeds
