I think I need to write a sed 's/original text/replacement text/g' linux shell script to uncomment all the disabled Snort rules. But the problem is that my Linux shell scripting knowledge is a bit rusty and I would need to revise it. Hence I am wondering if any of you guys can write a bash script with sed and for loops to uncomment the disabled Snort rules??? Thanks in advance!!! Don't worry, I will vet through the submitted shell scripts.
