[Snort-users] Links broken

Until the BASE team creates an official fix, you can pretty easily fix this yourself.

Change the link in base_conf.php, and then change the ':' to a '-' in line 338 in includes/base_signature.inc.php.

Seems to be working for me.

Speaking of BASE, I'd really like to somehow add some correlation with known vulnerabilities... What I am envisioning is a plain text (or DB table) with each IP and the discovered CVE vulnerabilities that BASE could then check when it builds the alert table.  Maybe display the ones with matching CVE vulnerabilities in a different color, or some other method.  The file should be easy enough to create from a Nessus NBE file, and probably easy enough with other vuln scanners.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the response to the old thread here.  Searchable rule docs have been back up on Snort.org for some time now.  Just go to snort.org/search<http://snort.org/search>.  The search capabilities have been greatly improved.  You can still search by SID but we've added the capability to search by MS advisory, reference, platform and key words.  If you haven't yet you should check it out.

The issue with BASE is that they haven't updated the project to link to the new search capability.  Kevin and the team at BASE are aware of the issue and are working on an update to BASE.

The snort team,

I'm using BASE for analisys of snort's alerts and I verified that the snort links are broken.
When I click in snort links for learning about alert, the result is "The page you are looking for isn't here".
For example: http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/sigs.cgi?sid=1:384.

Can you verify?
