Sorry to resurrect this older thread...

Would this work?

alert ip $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"1337 DDoS Tool"; content:"|01 03 03 07|"; flowbits:set,1337; reference:url,https://www.incapsula.com/blog/650gbps-ddos-attack-leet-botnet.html; classtype:attempted-dos; sid:X; rev:1;)

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"1337 DDoS Tool"; flowbits:isset,1337; flags:S; dsize:799<>936;  reference:url,https://www.incapsula.com/blog/650gbps-ddos-attack-leet-botnet.html; classtype:attempted-dos; sid:X; rev:1;)

Hello Joshua,

You may write an ip rule, not a tcp one, to be able to match on the |01 03 03 07| content in the TCP header.
However writing the snort rule through this way will prevent you to use the "flags" keyword reserved for the tcp rules.

To check a few boxes, I'm trying to gen up two signatures designed to detect the latest 1337 bot that Imperva wrote about (https://www.incapsula.com/blog/650gbps-ddos-attack-leet-botnet.html)

Basically I'm trying to write a signature designed to detect the TCP options which spell out 1337 as well as an abnormally large SYN packet ranging from 799 to 936.

I don't know SNORT supports my specifying the TCP options like:

Number: No-Operation (NOP) (1)

Kind: Window Scale (3)

Length: (3)

Shift count: (7)

Could I do it with"content" only, it doesn't seem likely but I'm running out of ideas...

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"1337 DDoS Tool"; flags:S; content:"Number: No-Operation (NOP) (1)"; content:"Kind: Window Scale (3)"; content:"Length: (3)"; content:"Shift count: (7)"; reference:url,https://www.incapsula.com/blog/650gbps-ddos-attack-leet-botnet.html; classtype:attempted-dos; sid:6000049; rev:1;)

As far as writing a signature to look for just the SYN packet size would this work to set two different sizes?

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"1337 DDoS Tool"; flags:S; dsize:>799; dsize:<936; reference:url,https://www.incapsula.com/blog/650gbps-ddos-attack-leet-botnet.html; classtype:attempted-dos; sid:6000049; rev:1;)

Any help would be awesome. Thanks!
