Snort can do that through the use of SnortSam. SnortSam can shun on
Cisco routers and various firewalls. See http://www.snortsam.net for
more info.

Regarding Snort deciding what is bad, well, Snort is an IDS and it is
the job of an IDS to flag certain packets/connections as 'bad' in that
sense that they match a signature or a rule.
