Hi Jesse,

I suggest capturing traffic that represents the activity you care
about.  Then manually inspect that traffic using Wireshark to see if
you can find indicators associated with those users.  You may find the
Wireshark display filters to be a friendlier way to start identifying
the activity of interest.  If you can build some confidence using
Wireshark, you could then try to build a Snort rule that alerts on the
same traffic.
