[Snort-users] [Snort-user] dynamic variable for content match

If you are trying to read information from a c++ program (using cin) and then have snort match on THAT content AFTER snort has already been started you are probably going to have to create something custom. Im not aware of a clean way to “input” data into snort without requiring a restart.

Hope this helps.

you said that you wanted to enter a string at the command line and have a rule
in snort detect that string in the network traffic... Al asked you to clarify
and listed his understanding of what you wanted to do... you came back and said
that was not the way you wanted to do it... so i asked you to be more explicit
and tell us how you do want to do it... we're still waiting on your explanation
of what you desire ;)
