Hi,
The Blackice server has an Auto-Block feature.
The auto-block, block only some types of known attacks.

We edit the .ini files and we add new entries to configuration, but, we need to make this entries with Auto-Block feature.

Is it possible to include some other attack types in Auto-Block feature?

Thanks for any help.

The auto-blocking feature will adjust firewall settings when it detects serious attacks. Therefore, if a hacker wanted to kick you off a server, the hacker could simply spoof attacks at your computer from the server. The auto-blocking feature would (in theory) then block all further access to the server in question. In order to guard against this, the product only triggers auto-blocking on attacks that are difficult/impossible to spoof. For a list of intrusions that trigger auto-blocking, please look in the file "issuelist.csv" in column 4. Note that you can edit this file yourself in order to cause auto-blocking to occur on attacks that you are concerned about

I am trying to block File Downlods from some types and block Http_Posts or containing some words that I consider and trying to attack...

I'm not sure you can customize blackice in that fashion.
I think what you're looking for is going to have to proxy http for you so that you can examine the http requests.
Have you looked at urlscan?
