Hello Everyone,

I would appreciate if anyone can help me out with my snort rule.

I would like generate a snort rule that can detected a HTTP get paramter.
Example: below

alert tcp any any -> any 80 (msg:"HTTP GET paramater"; content:"GET";

Right now when I type in http://www.example.com/index.php?action=login I do
not get a alert generated using the rule above.

Or how to detect if GET HTTP method with a specific parameter been used or
passed a value.

Secondly, how to write a simple pattern that can detect a specific string
or number pattern has been passed to this GET parameter. Just a example
pattern guidance would be nice.
