The snort signatures have a priority associated with them, either in the
rule itself, or in the classification. Is there anywhere that the
reliability (ie. the chance of it not reporting a false positive) of the
signature is recorded?

Subject: [Snort-users] Increase in ASN.1 alerts

Has anyone else noticed an increase in the number of alerts for
SPECIFIC-THREATS ASN.1 constructed bit string?  The payload seems
different than the kill-bill script.

An example can be found here.
