Did something change recently with snort output? (alerts)

  • Hi,

    Old box running Snort pkg v. 2.3.0 had the following snort alert format:

    [] [122:5:1] PSNG_TCP_FILTERED_PORTSCAN []
    [Classification: Attempted Information Leak] [Priority: 2]
    08/15-18:34:57.787598 ->
    PROTO:255 TTL:118 TOS:0x0 ID:2 IpLen:20 DgmLen:167 DF

    New test box Snort pkg v. 2.5.1 has the following alert format:

    09/06-18:44:06.877103 ,119,14,1,"(http_inspect) NON-RFC DEFINED CHAR",TCP,,60048,,5551,62981,Potentially Bad Traffic,2,

    I went digging for a change log and could not find one?

    We have custom scripts that parse this output and trying to figure out if I missed something in the config or something really changed between the packages.
