well, i've tried on that other list...

i'll try again over here...

given the following rule structure...

content:"ABC"; content:"EFG"; distance:1; within:10;

which of the following strings do NOT alert and why?

  2. ABCxEFG
  3. ABCx123456EFG
  4. ABCx1234567EFG
  5. ABCx12345678EFG
  6. ABCx123456789EFG
  7. ABCxx123456EFG
  8. ABCxx1234567EFG
  9. ABCxx12345678EFG
10. ABCxx123456789EFG

[sharp eyes will see that i'm trying to find the "maximal" or "most extreme" or 
"last" data package that will alert]
