Greetings everyone..

The signature is used (or hopefully will be used..) to detect 
incoming xdcc send requests.

Can anyone offer suggestions on the following error : 

I'm using snort 1.9, 

ERROR snort.conf Line 593 => ParsePattern Got Null enclosed in 
marks (")!
Fatal Error, Quitting..

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET 6660:7000 -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"Incoming 
XDCC Send Request Detected"; flow:to_server,established; content:" 
:^AXDCC *[Ss][Ee][Nn][Dd] *#[0-9]" ; nocase; offset:0; classtype:misc-

Thanks in advance..
