[Snort-users] disablesid.conf Issue (was Syntax for "ignore=" in Pulledpork)

Thanks for the help YM.

Unfortunately, I'm not getting 100% success when using disablesid.conf.  I tried various additions to disablesid.conf (ET-chat, emerging-chat.rules, emerging-chat, and ET-chat.rules) and  get the best results when I include the following line in disablesid.conf:


This still leaves 9 active ET chat rules in snort.rules:

# cat snort.rules | grep "ET CHAT"  | wc -l
The sids of these chat rules show that they come from the emerging chat.rules file.  Pulledpork does eliminate the majority of the Emerging Threat chat rules, but doesn't disable all the rules.  Has anyone else run into this issue?  Any suggestions for a fix/workaround?

In case it's relevant, I have the following line in pulledpork.conf:


I'm only using enablesid.conf to enable a single sid.

You need to define the rules/categories you want to ignore/disable in the "disbalesid.conf" file. Edit the same file and add:


The comments/documentation inside the "disbalesid.conf" file should be sufficient to get you going. I am not sure of the "ignore" within the "pulledpork.conf" will operate on ET rules. Someone else can jump in and comment in this regard.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [Snort-users] Syntax for "ignore=" in Pulledpork
What syntax is required with the "ignore=" line in Pulledpork (0.7.0) when ignoring selected Emerging Threats rules?  For example, if one wants to ignore chat.rules from the Emerging Rules set, what syntax is required?  I tried all of the following and yet "ET CHAT" rules still end up in snort.rules in the enabled state.





I have recent rule downloads, so I've been using the following:

./pulledpork.pl -c pulledpork.conf -n -P -E
