Snort Suppress List Syntax.

  • On the suppress list tab it says that you can use count and seconds as options for the list but I tried to do do just this and snort wouldn't start saying that it was an invalid option. So either the format described below the box is incorrect or this is no longer possible on the suppress list and only by going into the snort interface and adding a custom filter rule. Can someone verify that this isn't just me? If it isn't then we should update the comments on that page to avoid confusion.

    FATAL ERROR: /usr/local/etc/snort/snort_45782_igb4/suppwansuppress_585cb3283a4ca(63) suppress has incorrect argument count.
