[Snort-users] Rules & reference (ACID)

There is nothing wrong with seeing "[url]" in acid. Take a look at the
rule that triggered the alert:

alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET 80 -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"WEB-MISC readme.eml
autoload attempt"; flags:A+; content:"window.open(\"readme.eml\"";
nocase; classtype:attempted-user; sid:1290; rev:3;

As you an see that the reference points to a url. It is a big difference
from CVE. CVE's are maintained by MITRE and are directed to the MITRE
web page. Url's can point to any webpage.

As far as updating your version of Acid. I would make sure you have the
latest beta which is 17. There have been some changes lately that make
Acid more stable and feature rich.
