I spoke too soon!

 

It now detects the WEB-IIS attacks if I run them from the PC running snort.

 

Cheers,

Jody

It looks like this could be something to do with either Windows XP or XP
SP2.

I have just installed Snort on a Windows 2000 SP4 and it is working a treat.

 

Thanks,

Jody

Do you have the http_inspect preprocessor enabled and correctly configured?

Hello All,

I have just installed snort for the first time and am trying to test it from
my PC.

I am having trouble testing the web-iis rules.

I have tried accessing /msadcs.dll and /cmd.exe on some of the web servers
on our LAN, but no alerts are created by snort.

I added the following rule Snort as a test, which produced plenty of alerts:

alert tcp any any -> $HOME_NET $HTTP_PORTS (msg:"Test WEB-IIS";
flow:to_server; sid:1970; rev:6;)

However, when I add 'uricontent:"/msadcs.dll"; nocase;' to the above rule I
do not get any alerts.

I am new to Snort, so I imagine (hope) it's something pretty simple.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I am running Snort 2.1.3 on a Windows XP PC.

Cheers,

Jody
