I have installed Snort on windows 7 professional 32 bit and running
it using the command snort -i 3 -c C:\Snort\etc\snort.conf -A fast. In the
alert.ids file, I see a lot of reset outside window alerts, such as this,
08/21-23:16:37.473511  [**] [129:15:1] Reset outside window [**]
[Classification: Potentially Bad Traffic] [Priority: 2] {TCP}
I have reason to believe that these alerts are the result of malicious
activities. I want to protect my network from these attacks. Please provide
me the precise instructions to prevent these attacks, i.e. the rule(s), the
file to place the rule(s) in, & the location of the file.
