[Snort-users] netbios rules question

well, NETBIOS SMB-DS IPC$ share unicode access is perfectly innocuos. 
Windows machines routinely connect to each-other's IPC shares
(Inter-processor Communications).  So I wouldn't worry about it too
much.  Others may disagree, but what I do with this rule is threashold
it so that i only alerts on machines that trigger this rule more than
5 times in 60 seconds.  I am hoping that if there is a worm or an
automatic exploit, this rule will help me catch it, while at the same
time suppressing the day to day regular communication.

The other alert has been generating a large number of false positives
for me, so I suppressed it.  If you look at the description it seems
to only affect ISS (NOT IIS) servers.

Good luck
