[Snort-users] Syn-Flood

I've been looking for a rule that would detect a syn-flood. and the only way I can think of 
doing this would be with N "activate" rules (Where N is the number of SYN packets that 
arive in a specified time), and I think there's got to be a better way.

after reading the rules for dos-attacks, all I saw was that each tool that is detected, is 
detected by some content string, not specifically by a volume.

the documentation pdf doesn't have anything in it about a "count" option, or any other way 
that I can think of to count packets.

if anybody has any ideas, I'd be most thankful.

ob: snort --V: 2.0.0\
