[Snort-users] Cisco Sourcefire

It may not end up being that bad.  I was worried that Rapid7’s acquisition of Metasploit would kill that product, but it hasn’t really.  Changed it, for sure, but it hasn’t killed it.  I am a bit more worried about how the Cisco acquisition of Sourcefire will affect the VRT though.  I suspect Snort will (and has to because of GPL?) remain open source however.

This is suicide for Sourcefire. Sourcefire is better as an entity itself.

I remember the days before Sourcefire, and there were many other people,
groups, and companies contributing to the Snort project. After Sourcefire
assimilated their team, a lot of those developers were eventually pushed
away. Without Sourcefire can Snort development survive outside of the
Sourcefire environment.

Now the problem is (without any news from Marty), where does this leave all
of us in the big picture. I don't think Cisco was a good fit for anyone
outside of Sourcefire.
