Hi Chris,

thanks for your answer.

If I understood you right I have 2 choices:

Either use snort 1.9.x and http_decode or stay at 1.8.x and live with those
alerts of unidecode, since according to the comments in your shipped
snort.conf unidecode's use is recommended instead of http_decode in 1.8.x.

So long,
