FYI, this rule isn't valid.  It won't load in modern versions of snort.
"depth:2" says look for the pattern "% Login invalid" in the first 2
bytes of the packet.  "% Login invalid" is much longer than 2 bytes.
Fix that, and you should be good to go.

Other than that, if the idea works for you, awesome.
