I'm attempting to create a rule that detects inbound email with pdf attachments named in numbers only (Ex: 12345.pdf) and the name can be in any digits. Below is what I came up with, however, the rule was not triggered. I'm new to SNORT and still learning it. If anyone could please take a look and let me know if i need to make changes to this rule.


Thanks so much in advance.



alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET 25 (msg:"Test email PDF file attachment"; flow:to_server,established; content:"Content-Disposition|3A|"; nocase; pcre:"/(^\d+[1-9]+\.pdf$)/"; distance:0; classtype:suspicious-filename-detect; sid:100000106; rev:1;)
