What you are looking for is something like RazorBack, or possibly BroIDS.

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 analysis...

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 ;)
