Agreed Dave – I don’t suggest changing a rule to make up for a bad application.

Here is another report of a potential fp on this rule

http://sourceforge.net/p/snort/mailman/message/32980285/

If things can be improved so be it – otherwise I’ll just suppress this rule for that site.

That is the most horrible web-app I've seen in a long, long time.

I wonder how susceptible it is to cross-site scripting... :)

Looks like the function() { is what is triggering the rule.

Current rule

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET $HTTP_PORTS (msg:"OS-OTHER Bash CGI environment variable injection attempt"; flow:to_server,established; content:"() {"; fast_pattern:only; http_uri; metadata:policy balanced-ips drop, policy security-ips drop, ruleset community, service http; reference:cve,2014-6271; reference:cve,2014-6277; reference:cve,2014-6278; reference:cve,2014-7169; classtype:attempted-admin; sid:31977; rev:4;)

Will adding content:!” function() “ break things?

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET $HTTP_PORTS (msg:"OS-OTHER Bash CGI environment variable injection attempt"; flow:to_server,established; content:!” function() “; content:"() {"; fast_pattern:only; http_uri; metadata:policy balanced-ips drop, policy security-ips drop, ruleset community, service http; reference:cve,2014-6271; reference:cve,2014-6277; reference:cve,2014-6278; reference:cve,2014-7169; classtype:attempted-admin; sid:31977; rev:5;)
