[Snort-devel] Stream5: Missing TCP connections with require_3whs

Hi all,

I noticed that snort- does not recognize all possible TCP
connections when require_3whs is enabled for the Stream5 preprocessor.

A connection is missed if the TCP-Handshake packets (especially the
SYN-Pakets) have the ECN- or CWR-Flag set. This is due to stream5 only
checking for p->tcph->th_flags == TH_SYN, which is false if TH_SYN
_and_ TH_ECN are set.

I've created a patch against snort- (see attachment) that fixes
the problem.

Best regards,
