[Snort-sigs] HTTP Tunneling

I tried devising a signature to detect people trying to use CONNECT on a
vulnerable web server to tunnel elsewhere. The only problem is I got plenty
of legit uses of CONNECT. The noise came from people going to port 443 and
80, so I thought I'd filter those out, but it's still not removing those. Am
I missing something from the syntax? Any help is welcomed.

alert tcp any any -> any any (sid: 1000027; rev: 1; msg:"HTTP CONNECT
Tunnel"; content:"CONNECT "; nocase; content:!"443"; content:!"80";
content:" HTTP/1.0"; nocase; classtype:misc-activity;)
