Hello all,
I'm writing a little prog that read the data from the snort unisx dom 
socket and I need to retrieve, if it's presente, the cve code from 
the reference of the alert.

I'm reading a structure like 

typedef struct _Event {
 u_int32_t sig_generator; 
 u_int32_t sig_id; 
 u_int32_t sig_rev; 
 u_int32_t classification; 
 u_int32_t priority; 
 u_int32_t event_id; 
 u_int32_t event_reference;
 struct timeval ref_time; 
} Event;

/* alert socket code */
typedef struct _Snortpkt {
 u_int8_t alertmsg[ALERTMSG_LENGTH];
 struct timeval ts;
 u_int32_t caplen;
 u_int32_t len;
 u_int32_t dlthdr; 
 u_int32_t nethdr; 
 u_int32_t transhdr; 
 u_int32_t data;
 u_int32_t val; 
#define NOPACKET_STRUCT 0x1
#define NO_TRANSHDR 0x2
 u_int8_t pkt[SNAPLEN];
 Event event;
} Snortpkt;


how could I obtain the CVE from here?

Thankx all,
