Just a bit of warning, there are a number of changes that will be coming with
snort 1.8.  I have added rule classifications and priorities to snort 1.8
(with huge amounts of help from Andrew B. and Marty).  I have added a
classification to over 700 rules (available via CVS).

See below for an example how it works.  If you have any further questions,
feel free to e-mail myself or the snort-devel mailing list.

The following rules:
config classification: attempted-recon,Attempted Information Leak,3

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HTTP_SERVERS 80 (msg:"WEB-CGI phf access"; \
flags: A+; uricontent:"/phf";flags: A+; nocase; reference:arachnids,128;   \
reference:cve,CVE-1999-0067;  classtype:attempted-recon;)

Gives the output of:

[**] WEB-CGI phf access [**]
[Classification: Attempted Information Leak] [Priority: 3]
04/17-02:04:33.861311 ->
