I have set up snort successfully and I can get it to read pings to websites and scan packets. However, I am testing out the chat rules which should trigger an alert whenever I sign onto MSN or Yahoo but it does not seem to do anything whenever I sign in and talk to people. I have it enabled in snort.conf (took away the # sign) and see that chat.rules is in the rules directory. Anyone know any possible causes of this? Thank you.
PS: I'm also getting a lot of 1384 "malformed advertisement" alerts which I believe to be false positives. Any way to correct this? Thanks.
