in the recent rule updates, it seems that SID 1882 has now begun
generating false positives. It's search string "uid=" gets triggered on
long URLs, which was evidenced by a number (20K +) alerts we received this

alert ip $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET any (msg:"ATTACK-RESPONSES id
check returned userid"; content:"uid=";
byte_test:5,<,65537,0,relative,string; classtype:bad-unknown; sid:1882;

I belive the byte test is incorrect, but I'm not sure how to fix it since
I'm not as knowledgeable about the exploit it's trying to pick up. ANybody
want to chime in on this?
