I have also noticed this problem.  I'm interested in a solution as well.

Subject: [Snort-users] ACID errors

I'm getting the following error in ACID whenever I pull up any Unique
Alerts or Most Recent Alerts or Frequent Alerts lists:

Database ERROR:You have an error in your SQL syntax near '' at line 1

By poking around in mysql, I've traced it to one of two signatures that
started seeing alerts on this morning. Whenever I do a search in ACID
readme.eml, I get the error, although searches for other signatures
as "roughly ICMP") are fine. I'm not at all a SQL or php guy, so I'm
stumped. Where do I troubleshoot from here?

Snort Version 1.8.1-RELEASE (Build 74)
ACID v0.9.6b1

These are the signatures (from the snort.sourcefire.com ruleset):
web-misc.rules:alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET 80 -> $HOME_NET any
readme.eml autoload attempt"; flags:A+; content:"window.open
(\"readme.eml\""; nocase; classtype:attempted-user; sid:1290; rev:3;
web-misc.rules:alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET 80 -> $HOME_NET any
readme.eml attempt"; flags:A+; uricontent:"readme.eml"; nocase;
classtype:attempted-user; sid:1284; rev:3;

Any help is greatly appreciated!
