That's really great to see all the extra work going into the CIFS world,
but it still appears to be to be oriented around catching protocol
exploits. Are you looking to generalize it - like snort does with HTTP?
(e.g "uricontent")

i.e. I'd love to be able to have rules like

alert any any -> $SENSITIVE_SERVERS $cifs_ports (msg:"DLP trigger:
sensitive NetBIOS file access"; cifsfilename:"*.ppt"; content:"top
alert any any -> any $cifs_ports (msg:"DLP trigger: sensitive NetBIOS
dir access"; cifsdirname:"private"; content:"top secret"....)
alert any any -> $SENSITIVE_SERVERS $cifs_ports (msg:"DLP trigger:
unauthorized backup of >500 sensitive files";
cifsfilename:"*";threshold:type threshold, track by_src, count 500,
seconds 600; )

Just some ideas (I know you're sniffing around the DLP market ;-)
