ASA Shunning internal IP

Every once and awhile our email filter gets shunned by our ASA. Doing a no shun 192.168.0.208 fixes it, but I'm not sure why it is being shunned at all since the Threat detection is set to exclude the 192.168.0.0/23 subnet (see image).capture

We must have posted at the same time.

I have never seen an excluded IP get put on a shut list.  Having said that, I don't exclude subnets.

I would recommend adding the mail server IP with a /32 mask to see if that corrects the issue.

Sometimes mail servers generate a lot of traffic.  Either adjust the threat detection or exclude that IP.

And check that it hasn't been compromised.

The ip should be excluded per the screenshot, the whole subnet is.

I see the screenshot but it apparently isn't.

Is the exclusion visible in CLI?

It appears to be excluded.

I agree it is really weird, and it has been well over a year since I last touched the firewall and this config has not changed. I think I have smartnet on it, so I can just log a ticket and make them fix it. I'm sure I'm due for an os upgrade as well.

Was just hoping it was something easy.

It might be that it's a bug when working with a subnet.

Also, there have been several security vulnerabilities -- make sure that you get a release that covers them all and stays within the same train so that you don't have to buy more memory (if you're running something older).
