System logs fills up with "table index is nil" errors in Snort 2.9.7.2



  • This problem started with the previous version of Snort and forums said that it would be fixed however the pfsense system logs continue to fill up with the following error:

    snort[12893]: server /usr/pbi/snort-i386/etc/snort/appid/odp/lua/service_EIP.lua: error validating …i/snort-i386/etc/snort/appid/odp/libs/DetectorCommon.lua:318: table index is nil

    Anyone have a fix for this? Any help would be much appreciated!
