Do you have that rule enabled and is your IDS placed so it can see the
traffic to and from that server?

Subject: [Snort-users] Alerts question


I have been getting scanned daily by a host that is infected with "code
red". Obviously a web server is running on it and I went there and found the
typical script trying to push "readme.eml."

So, shouldn't snort catch this?

I just need to know if it should without getting into specifics of my
configuration.

I read that snort should detect "code red" if you go the the sight, but I am
not sure if this is true.
