Snort OpenAppID RULES Detectors



  • I have been unable to download the Snort OpenAppID RULES Detectors rules for the past month. The log displays that there is a bad checksum on the file.

    Upon looking through previous messages on this board, I have noticed this has happened before. This was fixed by contacting the contributor to change the checksum on the download.

    Snort OpenAppID RULES detectors file download failed.  Bad MD5 checksum.
    Downloaded Snort OpenAppID RULES detectors file MD5: 4a919586ee271f633a04b406b1332bf9

    Snort OpenAppID RULES detectors file download failed.  Snort OpenAppID RULES detectors will not be updated.

    Thanks in advance

    What version of pfSense & snort are you running ?



  • Thanks NogBadTheBad for your reply

    I am running the current version 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1 of pfSense and version 3.2.9.5_3 of Snort. Forcing an update still does not allow this file to download and install, though I am able to download from the link on the Global Settings tab. This would eliminate the possibility of being blocked by Geo-IP from the Brazilian hosting site.

    Included below are the signatures of the downloaded rule sets.

    Make sure you have the latest version of the Snort package installed.  The internal URL was changed from the Brazilian University to a pfSense hosting site.  Your problem may be your Snort version is trying to download an out-of-date version of the archive.

    I re-installed Snort, using the reinstall package button on the Package Manager window, though this has not allowed me to install Snort OpenAppID RULES Detectors. Do I have to completely remove Snort and them download again or is what I did what you had in mind?

    Are you using RAM disks?  If so, you might be running out of space on /tmp.  You need at least 300 MB of free space on that partition to download all of the rule archives.  I strongly recommend nobody use RAM disks for Snort or Suricata!

    This download is apparently working for others now or I would expect to see a lot of posts about problems.  There were issues a few weeks ago, but those should all be ironed out now.

  • Hi bmeeks

    I have checked my settings and I do not have the RamDisk setting on. As I am new to pfSense can you list the steps to check? So far I have uninstalled Snort and them installed again keeping my original settings.

    There may be something that I have checked that is interfering with the download. Not sure what it is through.
