[Snort-users] Integrating ClamAv into Snort

There are websites for both products that are very easy to find.

Basically, both products are essentially monitoring systems that can carve out specific things from your network streams, like downloaded files, and these can then be run through ClamAV or other executable checking tools.  Personally, I don't use them, but I carve out specific files that were alerted on by Snort (I'm running StreamDB and OpenFPC), and analyze these on a case by case basis.

Sorry I meant Shawn.

I'm looking up the tools but I'm trying to understand what they do; although I have a little idea but there seems to be no place on what it is, what's used for and the purpose of the tools.

Any intake on that?

Ayo

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 ;)
