Logstash DNS Filter - Enrichment security example


(Raj) #1

Hi All,

I was trying to execute the Data enrichment logstash -IP addresses exist in an external DNSBL (DNS Blocklist)?

filter {
   grok {
     match => { "message" => "%{WORD:addr1}.%{WORD:addr2}.%{WORD:addr3}.%{WORD:addr4}" }     <= extract different part of the IP address 
   }
   mutate {
     add_field => {
     "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" => "%{addr4}.%{addr3}.%{addr2}.%{addr1}.zen.spamhaus.org" . <= reformat the address for spamhaus query
     }
   }
   dns {
     resolve => [ "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" ] <= perform lookup using the reverse address format.
     nameserver => [ "x.x.x.x" ]
     add_tag => [ "dns_successful_lookup" ]
     action => replace
   }
   if "dns_successful_lookup" in [tags] {
     if [spamhaus_reverse_lookup] == "127.0.0.2" { <= 127.0.0.2 is a special return address from spamhaus that indicate the lookup address is listed in spamhaus spam database
       mutate {
          add_tag => [ "spam_address" ]
       }
     }
   }
}

I get a message stating
[FATAL] 2018-02-22 12:41:53.785 [LogStash::Runner] runner - The given configuration is invalid. Reason: Expected one of #, and, or, xor, nand, { at line 19, column 8 (byte 533) after filter {

But if I comment out the last section the filter it works fine ,am not sure whats the problem with that.

filter {
  if [type] == "spam" {
   grok {
     match => { "message" => "%{WORD:addr1}.%{WORD:addr2}.%{WORD:addr3}.%{WORD:addr4}" }
    }
   mutate {
     add_field => {
     "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" => "%{addr4}.%{addr3}.%{addr2}.%{addr1}.zen.spamhaus.org"
     }
   }
   dns {
     resolve => [ "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" ]
     nameserver => [ "x.x.x.x" ]
     add_tag => [ "dns_successful_lookup" ]
     action => replace
   }
#   if "dns_successful_lookup" in [tags] {
#     if [spamhaus_reverse_lookup] == "127.0.0.2"
#       mutate {
#          add_tag => [ "spam_address" ]
#        }
#    }
  }
}

Please do let me know  what could be the problem in the logstash filter.

Thanks,
Raj

Do you actually have the "<=" comments in your configuration file? Remove them, and watch out for the period at the end of one of the lines in the first mutate filter.

Thank you for the reply , actually I copied that configuration from that blog but my configuration looks like this

filter {
  if [type] == "spam" {
   grok {
     match => { "message" => "%{WORD:addr1}.%{WORD:addr2}.%{WORD:addr3}.%{WORD:addr4}" }
    }
   mutate {
     add_field => {
     "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" => "%{addr4}.%{addr3}.%{addr2}.%{addr1}.zen.spamhaus.org"
     }
   }
   dns {
     resolve => [ "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" ]
     nameserver => [ "x.x.x.x" ]
     add_tag => [ "dns_successful_lookup" ]
     action => replace
   }
   if "dns_successful_lookup" in [tags] {
     if [spamhaus_reverse_lookup] == "127.0.0.2"
       mutate {
          add_tag => "spam_address"
        }
    }
  }
}

Then i tried comment out the last section the filter like this

filter {
  if [type] == "spam" {
   grok {
     match => { "message" => "%{WORD:addr1}.%{WORD:addr2}.%{WORD:addr3}.%{WORD:addr4}" }
    }
   mutate {
     add_field => {
     "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" => "%{addr4}.%{addr3}.%{addr2}.%{addr1}.zen.spamhaus.org"
     }
   }
   dns {
     resolve => [ "spamhaus_reverse_lookup" ]
     nameserver => [ "x.x.x.x" ]
     add_tag => [ "dns_successful_lookup" ]
     action => replace
   }
#   if "dns_successful_lookup" in [tags] {
#     if [spamhaus_reverse_lookup] == "127.0.0.2"
#       mutate {
#          add_tag => [ "spam_address" ]
#        }
#    }
  }
}

it works fine.Please let me know what could be the problem
Thanks,
Raj

There's a { missing from the if [spamhaus_reverse_lookup] == "127.0.0.2" line.

This it stuff you can debug by commenting out pieces of the configuration until you narrow thing down to a single line or two.
