[Snort-users] Snort's capabilities

Hi all,

I have a general question about snort's capabilities.
I know Snort works by "pattern matching" of attacks signatures since Snort
is not a "protocol analysis" IDS. However I saw Snort could detect a wrong
value "Content-length" in a Post HTTP request.
So, how can Snort detect this malformed request ? Is this a feature
provided by the preprocessor of the HTTP protocol ?

Thanks for your answers
