I just upgraded to Snort 1.9dev on RHLinux 7.0 and noticed the signature
"WEB-ATTACKS mail command attempt" is generating false positives
occasionally. I checked the rule which looks for "/bin/mail" but none of the
traces have "/bin/mail" in them. It happened about 5 times in one day from 5
different sources.
