[Snort-users] Rule 17494

As a matter of clarity... there are a number of distinct differences between
a GID:3 stub rule and a GID:1 regular rule.

Note the following GID:3 stub:

alert icmp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"DOS Microsoft IP Options
denial of service"; sid:10127; gid:3; rev:1; classtype:attempted-dos;
reference:cve,2006-2379; metadata: engine shared, soid 3|10127;)

You will see that it contains only a msg:""; value and no content or other
testing keyword values.  Also note that it contains a gid:x; keyword and a
value soid within the metadata section.

One common keyword that you may see would be flowbits:...;

Using these items it should be fairly easy to identify a GID:3 vs a GID:1
based rule.
