I can see both sides of the argument here - I do side with encouraging
people to solve their own problems but in the case of
there's no real reason for it reflecting out of date information
or for not offering a better example of how to construct 'filename'
A wider issue is that if the Snort source tarball contained some
example rules (or a sample local.rules and then commented out all the
others included by default) it might be easier for the beginner.
But then of course, there's Pulledpork and SecurityOnion,
and if IT was easy then I'd be out of a job.
