Yes.  Take a look at the criteria for what rules go into what policy (obviously updated for year)


The Open Source ruleset is based off of “balanced”.

I'm trying to test snort in my VM

I notice in the snort rule files (*.rules), some of the rules are commented ( # ) even when i update it with pulledpork.

As I understand, pulledpork will give you the latest rules against the latest threat.

Should I removed the comment sign to make the rules active?
