[Snort-users] security of acid

Most of the security would be handled by the web server - eg using .htaccess
files to password protect your acid pages, or restrict by IP address.  Any
security holes found in PHP would be fixed promptly anyway, so I don't think
that there are any issues here.  Just keep up to date with bug
reports/vulnerability reports.

That's certainly the best way to do it. Only in this case I need to
run snort on the protected machine which is connected to the internet
only and is a webserver.
So I wonder what happens to security when I add PHP.
