Possible BUG in Snort custom.rules


  • Moderator

    I am noticing an issue in Snort custom.rules

    1. create a new rule(s) in custom.rules, and restart the Snort Interface
    2. go back to custom.rules and delete the rules, leaving no rules defined and Click "Save"

    The custom.rules will not clear.
    To save the custom.rule (with no rules), you need to enter a "single space" to be able to save the custom.rules.

    I submitted the fix for this problem in the current Snort 2.9.5.6 pkg v3.0.4 Pull Request that is posted on GitHub now.  So as soon as the Core Team guys review and approve the request, this fix will be posted.  Here is the link to the request:  https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense-packages/pull/582

    Thanks Bill. I guess there is the changelog.

    Unfortunately after this upgrade, I dont see any of these changes. There are no new icons in the Alerts Tab, Clicking on a remove Block still brings it to the Lan interface. The Rules tab is not updated.

    Maybe this is still the previous release? Let me know if you want me to test anything.

    Thanks.
