for what reason? if you are thinking about scanning files that users transfer, 
then you want to include additional packages along side of your snort... these 
would perform full packet capture and then offer slicing out the files for 

snort needs to sniff and sniff only... it doesn't need to worry about things 
like scanning for viruses or even trying to log to a database... these things 
slow snort down and traffic is lost or otherwise not analyzed... that's not a 
GoodThing<tm>... leave these tasks to other apps to handle ;)
