Hi all,

Snort signature for detecting slapper worm's communication messages is -

alert udp $EXTERNAL_NET 2002 -> $HTTP_SERVERS 2002 (msg:"MISC slapper 
worm admin traffic";
content:"|0000 4500 0045 0000 4000|"; offset:0; depth:10; 
classtype:trojan-activity; 
reference:url,www.cert.org/advisories/CA-2002-27.html;
reference:url,isc.incidents.org/analysis.html?id=167; sid:1889; rev:3;)

Should we be matching for content: "|0000 4500 0045 0000 4000|";
or
content: "|4500 0045 0000 4000|";

I could not understand why the 0000 is there at the starting.

I saw this example on the internet - Notice the 0x0000 which is the part 
of the program
( tcpdump / snoop or whatever ). I hope that is not the 0000 which has 
been included in
the signature. Could anyone please explain ? Thanks a lot.
