If you have an alert on a TruffleHunter rule, we’d be particularly interested in analyzing the pcap.  :)

actually, i found this site https://www.talosintelligence.com/reports/TALOS-2017-0458 for this alert

it seems the alert is related to a software named Photoline 20.02 and a specially formatted file. I am guessing since this software runs on windows and mac and both the source and destination the alerts are linux server, this should be a false positive? I wonder what triggered the alert.

thank you.
