Hi all,

  I am using snort on my laptop as a test lab. When I try to download files from 
Internet, Snort displays this alert:

09/15-14:44:36.373001  [Drop] [**] [1:1390:6] SHELLCODE x86 inc ebx NOOP [**] 
[Classification: Executable code was detected] [Priority: 1] {TCP} ->

Why is this alert genereated?? I am downloading .rpm, .xml, and .gz files ...
