Either you can install lzma package  or change the line 325 to decompress_swf { deflate } \

Does line 326 of snort.conf look like:

decompress_swf { deflate lzma }

If so, then try removing the ‘lzma’ keyword.  If snort is not built with the LZMA libraries for LZMA SWF file decompression, then this keyword will lead to a syntax error.

It's telling you that line 326 of snort.conf has an error. Perhaps a mismatched or out of place '}'
