What is Denial of Service?


The Denial of Service option, only applicable for SMTP scanners, allows administrators to automatically  deny connections to any address which attempts massive amounts of connections over a period of time. GWAVA automatically keeps a constantly updating list of addresses and their connections. Simple configuration and settings allow custom variables for this option.

For Denial of Service to function, it must be enabled along with the connection drop option.
