Thanks, I've tried multiple rules, but this one works the best...

I use:

alert ip $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET any
(pcre:"/[1-9]{3,3}[-][1-9]{2,2}[-][1-9]{4,4}/"; msg:"SSN# in clear
text"; classtype:policy-violation; sid:2000370; rev:2;)  

Works for me

I'm trying to get snort to generate an alert for SS#'s, I've tried the
rule below but no alerts are generated. I tested this with pcretest and
it works...am I missing something?
alert tcp any any -> any any (msg:"Socail Security Number Clear Text";
