[Snort-users] http normalization

Hi,

I've been going through the README.http_inspect file of the current snort
src distribution:

"For example, the URI:
/scripts/..%c0%af../winnt/system32/cmd.exe?/c+ver
will get normalized into:
/winnt/system32/cmd.exe?/c+ver
Another example,
/cgi-bin/aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa/..%252fp%68f?
into:
/cgi-bin/phf?"

When I read this, two questions appeared somehow:

1. In the first example: Is this URI really normalized that way, wouldn't
that be the following: scripts/..À¯../winnt/system32/cmd.exe?/c+ver?

2. Seconde example: What happens to all this 'a' characters? Why are these
deleted?

Thanks for any help

Peter
