[Snort-users] snort-acid timestamp problem...anyone ever fix this?

Hello all,

I'm new to the list, and subscribed due to a problem I'm having with
timestamps using snort/acid.  I saw the post below in the archives from
November, but no one seemed to have an answer, so I'm re-asking:  does
anyone know why the timestamps ACID would be reporting are wrong?  The
system clock is correct, but the timestamps are consistently off by 8
hours.  Even on the ACID main page, the "queried on" time shows up

	Queried on  : Mon January 13, 2003 15:53:03

but the "time window" is off:
	Time window: [2003-01-13 23:16:53] - [2003-01-13 23:52:49]

Any guesses?

It's the same amount of time. (3 hours).
Redhat is set with America/Santiago (Chile) Time Zone.

How many hours, days minutes or seconds is it out. Is it the same
amount of time or does it fluctuate between logs.
