ThreatConnect Feed bridge fails to start

ThreatConnect Feed bridge fails to start

This solution applies to Carbon Black versions v4.2.0 and earlier.


Following installation of the ThreatConnect Alliance Feed, starting the bridge fails with the following message:

[root@cb ~]# /etc/init.d/cb-threatconnect-bridge start

Starting cb-threatconnect-bridge: Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/share/cb/integrations/carbonblack_threatconnect_bridge/carbonblack_threatconnect_bridge", line 4, in <module>

    import cbthreatconnectbridge.bridge

  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/cbthreatconnectbridge/bridge.py", line 18, in <module>

    from cbint.utils import cb_crypto

ImportError: cannot import name cb_crypto


To resolve the issue run the following on the Carbon Black server to copy the necessary cb_crypto files:

cp /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/cb/utils/cb_crypto.* /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/cbint/utils

Then see that the bridge starts successfully:

/etc/init.d/cb-threatconnect-bridge start

Important Note(s)

Defect FEED-107 refers to this issue, and the fix is included in Carbon Black v4.2.1.
