Subject: Attack on snort running in Public Zone

  Helllo Everybody.

  I have snort running on win2k and it is working fine so far.I had placed
it in DMZ to monitor the malicious traffic passing through firewall and Now
i want to put another snort win2k system in Public zone i.e in between my
router and firewall so i can know which traffic is actually hitting the
outside interface of my firewall.
  My concern is :  Since my snort system ( win2k ) is gonna be on public IP
address , what will happen if somebody runs a Denial of service attack on my
snort system itself.
  How can i be sure that my snort system running on win2k is safe from DOS
attack ?
