Hello there...

There are people out here,
I just suspect some of us might be a bit busy
now and again...

I think the last mention of this
was that Max Vision has provided
the arachnids database and that
is generally sufficient (seeing as it
is what the vision.conf is based upon)

A search for (presently)


where X is the IDS number reported
by Snort would probably be sufficient...

Perhaps putting this information
into some local form might, however,
be a project worth pursuing... ???
