Is there any way to write a rule so that it _doesn't_ log an alert?
I'm currently running snort against two B subnets. The amount of
CodeRed and Nimda probes that hit the network is fairly high (ie, 5000+
per hour). The number of machines on the network that become infected
is also extremely high. Anyone that's worked in an academic environment
will understand my pain ;).
Anyways, I'd like to make use of flexible response _without_ having to
parse though 100,000 alerts at the end of the day. ie, snorts sees a
request for cmd.exe, kills the connection, and goes on its merry way
without generating an alert. Is this possible?
