Snort Service Won't Start Fatal Error after Latest Update
Just finished updating SNORT to version 126.96.36.199 but now the service won't start. Rebooted, still same problem. Log file shows FATAL Error
May 26 16:57:11 snort 59578 FATAL ERROR: /usr/local/etc/snort/snort_49494_pppoe0/rules/snort.rules(3957) byte_test rule option cannot extract more than 4 bytes without valid string prefix.
Any help to point me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
I had the same problem. See the end of this thread for the solution that worked for me.
Hello and thanks. This also worked for me.
