fixup 2.5.3 build 16302 released

Global PenaltBox

ASSP V2 Global-Penalty-Box short description
What is the global-PB?

Every ASSP-installation has it's own local penaltybox. Base on the local valence-values, IP addresses will get black- or whitelisted.
These black- and whitePB records are sent to a global server once a day. The global-PB-server consolidates all records and builds two global databases - global-Black and global-White. After uploading the local records to the global server, ASSP downloads this two databases and merges the records into the local databases. So any ASSP, that is part of this global-PB-network, learns all records, that are known by all other global-clients and is able to block or accept emails based on this records.... read more
