It uses the classification.config file in your rules directory.
Basically, it takes each threat type, and matches it up with the
corresponding occurance in that file. So in the default
config classification: not-suspicious,Not Suspicious Traffic,3
is the first line, so it would be classification 1.

Take a look in void ParseClassificationConfig(char *args) in signature.c

Hope this helps.
