[Snort-users] Call for features requests for SPPv2

Hear Hear.  I have found the same thing.  In fact I have stopped logging
Portscan info to a database because it fouls up any ability to search on
unique alerts using ACID with nearly every portscan generating a unique
alert.

I can imagine that it would be a challenge to log a portscan with a single
source & destination ip/port when the nature of a portscan is to hit may
ports/hosts in a short amount of time.

Would a separate table in the db be useful for dealing with portscans, since
logging each of the actual packets in the normal events might overwhelm us?

Any other suggestions?

I don't know if it has to do with the snort Portscan Preprocessor, ACID or
anything inbetween, but when using ACID you get 3 lines for each portscan
and you don't even get any good info from them. I have to revert back to the
log file to gather any type of information. It sure would be nice to get
this cleaned up.

The grapevine was properly seeded for me to catch wind that The Big Guy (TM)
wants
a new version of the Snort Portscan Preprocessor out and he wants it
yesterday. ;)

Make your voice heard!  Tell me what you like and don't like about the
current
SPP and what features you feel are lacking.  No request is too large and no
request is too small.  I take all requests and comments!  It doesn't mean
I'll
implement them all, but I do take them...

Just please reply to me directly; feel free to cc: the list if you'd like.
I get
too much mail to too many lists to pore through it all.


Thanks,

~Patrick
