These files include signatures that detect activity beyond "pings".  I would
recommend reviewing the contents of "icmp.rules" and "icmp-info.rules"
before remarking them out of your snort.conf file completely.  During your
review if you find a rule (i.e "ICMP PING Windows" or "ICMP PING") that you
wish to ignore, then remark it or delete it..
