I am away from my snort machine at moment so am now trying to remember where
I got the bleeding rules...
Looks like there are a few places to get them from??
Which do you use and how often are these up-dated?
I have to say I was quite surprised to see the virus rules in the basic rule
set just scanning for file extensions.

Yes.  In fact, that's what I do for my spyware stuff (under malware rules)

Yes the virus bleeding edge rules any way, are the malware rules one and the
same or are they separate?
I have just realized that I can limit the logging to just the alerts rather
than so much other interesting traffic appearing in a folder for each ip
address. Is that right?

Ok - are you also using the bleeding edge snort malware and virus rules?

Thanks Bob.
I actually posted the same question in a couple of different ways.
I gave a little more detail the second time.
I am new to the 'email list' thing so am not sure on the process honestly. 

Any way your reply is much appreciated.
I will be watching this list with much interest.
I am actually after trying to use snort as a quick check point for virus,
worm type traffic across a small buss network. Over and above regular client
based virus software.
