[Snort-users] Pulledpork and changing rules in modifysid.conf

Hi Robert,

Changing a rules action from "alert" to "drop" is better handled in dropsid.conf rather than "modifysid.conf". That said, to change all rules from "alert tcp" to "drop tcp", you can do something like, In dropsid.conf, add the following line:

pcre:alert tcp

Not much luck with adding the string "react:msg;" though. I attempted with pcre in modifysid.conf but no good. May be someone else can chime in.

We need to change rules but I don't know how to do this by this file because I have difficult case.


The goal is: changing in every rule with "alert tcp" to "drop tcp" AND add string "react: msg; "
