Hello everyone
i am using below rule to detect ftp brute force attack.

alert tcp $HOME_NET 21 -> $EXTERNAL_NET any (msg:"ET SCAN Potential
FTP Brute-Force attempt";
flow:from_server,established; content:"530 ";
threshold: type threshold, track by_dst, count 5, seconds
60; sid:2002383; rev:10;)

it is working properly.but when i check generated log file using u2spewfoo
it shows source of attack as destination and destination of
attack as a source(means it shows attacker as a target).i also know why it
is happening because "530 login incorrect" message generated by FTP server.
I just want to know there is any way so that i got a generated log which
shows actual source and destination of attack.

Warm Regards
