View Full Version : having problems with snort

November 2nd, 2010, 10:56 PM
Using Ubuntu 10.04 with snort-mysql and Base.

I'm getting this error when I run sudo snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf:

Warning: /etc/snort/rules/community-dos.rules(16) => threshold (in rule) is deprecated; use detection_filter instead.
ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/community-virus.rules(19) => !any is not allowed
Fatal Error, Quitting..

I'm following this guide, although it's kinda old.

I have MYSQL and Base set up and working, but snort doesn't log anything to base probably because of the above error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
