 Snort has a nimda worm signature for its ruleset and yes it can see
netbios traffic.


Just remember that if the worm is on the inside of your network , IE on
your own workstations, you wil have to get snort snorting on the inside
lan . I  would suggest a snort for inside and a snort for outside.. they
can be on the same box .. just run different instances with different
snort.conf files.

you can get it at the home page http://www.snort.org
