I have installed Snort 1.9.1 on RedHat 8.0..! It is working just great except for too many alerts that I get which are just overwhelming my screen. These I believe are false postives but I want them to STOP. Please help me in stopping these. Ofcourse I don't want to unload the rules therefore any other solution is welcome.

The messages are:
"SCAN UPNP service discover attempt"
"nessus MISC xdmcp info query" (I think I know this because I use cygwin XWin.exe to connect to this server over X and this started after using this)
"X11 MIT Magic Cookie detected" (probably because of the same reason above...XDM)...
