Maybe just a word correction?  I’ll send this over the guys.

Signed PGP part
I had an alert for 37053 and when I went to look at it I noticed an
issue with either the message or the rule direction

The rule msg says it is "MALWARE-CNC Win.Trojan.Tdrop2 outbound
communication attempt," however, with the direction of the traffic
being "$EXTERNAL_NET $FILE_DATA_PORTS -> $HOME_NET any" and the flow
set as to_client, it doesn't seem like this is outbound at all.

Is this just a naming issue or am I missing something.
