I have Snort now running on my Raspberry in IDS mode (thanks Don Mizutani!),
great. It spits out in /var/log/snort/alerts reports like
[**] [129:12:1] Consecutive TCP small segments exceeding threshold
[Classification: Potentially Bad Traffic] [Priority: 2]
04/15-21:21:36.514707 192.168.178.100:2049 -> 192.168.178.28:698
TCP TTL:64 TOS:0x0 ID:18139 IpLen:20 DgmLen:128 DF
***AP*** Seq: 0xD8616620 Ack: 0x6982D5A5 Win: 0x103A TcpLen: 32
TCP Options (3) => NOP NOP TS: 1942222394 4294959044
This is an alert about friendly traffic (a NFS connection).
Where can I learn how to deal with these alerts? How can I suppress
false-positives like these?
I can find a truckload of information online about installation of Snort.
But where to find information on the usage? Am I overlooking something?
Any help will gladly be appreciated!
