I hope this is a simple question, been investigating this for some time and
not come up with anything yet...
I want to find a certain string in my web-page source code- but I use gzip
encoding to deliver it , and my snort rules aren't catching it... is there
away to do this... to "zcat" or "zgrep" http gzip encoded content? possibly
I do not wish to DOS my site, so if you look at yahoo - you can see a very
http://finance.yahoo.com/ some of the source is gziped, and then deflated
by my machine, does snort have a deflate? So that I could pick out a string
for example with the yahoo link above... I'd like to find
"stocks" ... I don't see that string in my pcap... I hope I'm missing
my rule is as follows for this example
alert tcp $HOME_NET any <> $EXTERNAL_NET any (msg:"yahoo-test"; content:"|73
74 6F 63 6B 73|"; classtype: unknown;)
pcap is attached
