Hey Guys,
Been pounding the pig all day and still have a few kinks to work out.
I've installed snort and pulledpork via brew on OSX.  With this groups help, I was able to get pulledpork functioning.  Now I'm getting the following error when trying to run snort with this command...

sudo snort -c /etc/snort/snort.conf -l /var/log/snort/
Initializing rule chains...
ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/app-detect.rules(33) Unknown ClassType: web-application-attack

Fatal Error, Quitting..

Any ideas on what I'm missing?
* Most probably, the web-application-attack is missing from the classification.config file.
I did comment out the following (because I was getting a different error around black lists):

# Reputation preprocessor. For more information see README.reputationpreprocessor reputation: \#   memcap 500, \#   priority whitelist, \#   nested_ip inner, \
#   whitelist $WHITE_LIST_PATH/white_list.rules, \#   blacklist $BLACK_LIST_PATH/black_list.rules 
Thanks for any thoughts,
* Download up-to-date configuration files and replace the existing/older ones. You can download them from here: https://www.snort.org/configurations
