I was about to suggest that too.  We have some websites at my company that
are restricted to specific domains and IP addresses.  On my snort logs I get
that alert a lot.  Everytime someone (or a nimda code red worm) comes to one
of our restricted websites, they get a 403 error, and snort catches it.

Alwin, first few things that come to mind are:

Someone on the network went to a site that returned a 403 page.
What is your External_Net and Home_Net set to?
Can you post the alert in question or provide more detail....

Hi Guys,

I dont know if this already posted but again I need
your help about this Attack Response.

It showed on my database that I'm the one attacking
some server?, which is impossible.  I know this is
false positive alert.

Any idea and comment will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance brother in snort.
