[Snort-users] Snort Event Ids on win2000

C,

This is normal, why, don't ask me but I see this all the time. My best guess
is in the way the Service is installed?

Here is my log:
The description for Event ID ( 1 ) in Source ( snort ) cannot be found. The
local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message
DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following
information is part of the event: [1:1002:5] WEB-IIS cmd.exe access
[Classification: Web Application Attack] [Priority: 1]: {TCP}
68.54.249.224:1499 -> 192.168.1.100:80.

In other words, Snort is functioning and this is a normal operation. Snort
has been like this for, well, since the Service option was added to Snort
for Windows.

Cheers...

If you use the -E parameter, Snort logs to the Application event log under a
source called SnortService.  However, I still am unclear how this is
supposed to work since it does not appear as though the Snort install on
Windows registers a message resource DLL.  So even when I log to the event
log, I get the following (note that the Event Viewer cannot properly format
the message since it cannot locate a valid resource DLL):

Event Type:	Error
Event Source:	SnortService
Event Category:	None
Event ID:	1
Date:		5/27/2003
Time:		5:55:21 PM
User:		N/A
Computer:	MYCOMPUTER
Description:
The description for Event ID ( 1 ) in Source ( SnortService ) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or
message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following
information is part of the event:  [SNORT_SERVICE] Error while adding the
Snort service to the Services database. Unrecognized error (1072). The
specified service has been marked for deletion.


Have you had any better luck?

Is there documentation of the Snort Event Ids that one
could find in the Application Event Log of Windows
2000 ? If Snort doesn't write to the Event log on
win2000 where might I find 'log' type information ? 

Thanks
