Description Zing 2007-05-22 10:42:51 EDT
Description of problem:
default enabled sshd fail2ban configuration sends mail to yourmail@mail.com

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.8.0-4.fc6 and devel

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install fail2ban
2.see in /etc/fail2ban/jail.conf the mail-whois line sends
  mail to yourmail@mail.com
Actual results:
mail notification sent to yourmail@mail.com on startup

Expected results:
it would be nice if this was already configured to send to root by default:

mail-whois[name=SSH, dest=root]

this is how 0.6 was configured by default.

Additional info:
enhancement: since we're enabling sshd by default, please configure mail to root
by default... that way the default configuration will just work when fail2ban is
started.  thanks!

Patch to enable ssh jail properly

Replaces the current patch to jail.conf

[Omitting this in the previous patch was my fault, sorry]
