Thanks Joel, the issues was with the disabled rule. Once I enabled it, Snort started to alert using VRT ruleset.

I know the selection of ruleset is subjective to the environment, is there any best practice for a set of rule that should be enabled when you want to monitor a single Internet facing webserver and ssh server?

Have you tried:


Rule 2100498 is a copy of the VRT rule sid:498. It’s disabled by default in the ruleset, so you may have to enable it (notice that we don’t enable everything by default)
