I use host-based protections and the fact that the
server is in a private network adds to the mitigation
factor. Patching not necessary. You can't compromise a
box you can't get to, or even ping. And no one is
going to even try that hard on the inside. Now on a
public server, no doubt patching is neccessary. Raise
your hand if your snort box is a public server.
