[Snort-users] SNORT and Linux 8.0

So the original poster did not correctly identify the OS version. He may
well not claim to be a Sr. Principal Consultant in Linux, or even in IDS or
security. Perhaps he simply has that .sig file attached to every email he
sends. Would you expect him to be an expert in asian-fusion cooking if he
sent an email to a food related list simply because he had that signature
attached?
 
Granted, (it appears) he totally mistook "RedHat <==> Linux" and this is a
*below novice* error, but nowhere do I see anything that indicates he is
selling himself as a Linux consultant (or even that the question was related
to a consulting gig. He could be beginning to play with it at home to try to
learn something...). If you look at the web-site, you will notice that it is
a "Management Consulting Firm" and doesn't appear to advertise itself as
having a focus on computer security.
 
Of course, the original poster should have clearly put a bit more effort
into "RTFM" (reading the "Friendly" manual...) before posting such a basic
question (I believe snort has built and run flawlessly on RH8 for hmmm...
nearly *ever* )
 
Maybe this should be taken to "alt.flame-wars.intolerant-of-newbie-postings"
(or /dev/null, whichever is closer)
 
Cheers,
 
Jim

Why?  Stealing is wrong.  Selling people something you don't have is
stealing.  This applies even it's you're selling what you know.  Consultants
like this give the rest of us a bad name.

Does anyone know who their clients are?  They should be warned the Sr
Principal Consultant has no clue ! !

Does anyone know what version of Snort will run on Linux 8.0?

 

Thank You
