Pulledpork 500 error, but I do have current certs!

Hello All,
I'm running Sort 2.7.5 on FreeBSD 10.1, when I try to update the rules with pulledpork I get a 500 error. The
-vv option shows that it can not verify the cert, but I do have the current root certs. I've removed the https
for http in the pulledpork.conf but it seems to be getting a redirect back to https for AWS.

My root cert is in "/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/Mozilla/CA/cacert.pem", I've verified with
"openssl s_client -CAfile /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/Mozilla/CA/cacert.pem -connect
s3.amazonaws.com:443 < /dev/null". I assume this may be a perl issue (not really sure), is there a way to
tell pulledpork where to look for the root certs, or could I just setup a symbolic link? If I can just do a
symbiotic link where should I put it?

Thanks,
Avery

test string not alerting

I can do a simple ICMP alert that works:
alert icmp any any -> 20.1.1.10 any ( msg: "ICMP packet to high value target!"; sid: 1; rev:1; priority: 1;)

Yet I cant create a simple text string detector to detect HTML strings:
alert tcp any any <> any any (msg:"somebody farted"; content:"poop"; sid: 2; rev:2; priority: 1;)


I wouldnt waste a mailing lists time with this, but I've setup an entire ESXI lab with routers, switches, security monitors, and THIS.. THIS is what is stumping me.

hints/clues/suggestions welcome.

thanks.

Sean

Snorby Portscan Detection Failiure

Good Morning,


I have configured my port-scan preprocessor as follows:




I run nmap against this box and nothing gets displayed in Snorby? I did make sure that my unified 2 output is getting piped over to Snorby, but so far i only see my ICMP test rule I created and no port-scan detection... is there something I am missing?

Save reassembled session if keyword is found. 2

Another question with 'session:binary'.
To save all tcp stream, I used a rule
"alert tcp any any <> any any (session:binary)"
It seems worked except the reassembled result is partly duplicated. for example

220 ESMTP ready
EHLO
250
MAIL From:<abc <at> def.com>
421
QUIT
EHLO                    // duplicated
MAIL From:<abc <at> def.com> // duplicated

Has anyone used 'session:binary' and seen this issue?
Is this the only way to save the whole session?

Barnyard2 - Where is the latest beta tar?

Hi

I have been using the 'stable' Barnyard2 V2-1.13 as shown in Barnyard2.h
#define PROGRAM_NAME    "Barnyard"
#define VER_MAJOR       "2"
#define VER_MINOR       "1"
#define VER_REVISION    "13"
#define VER_BUILD       "327"

IF you look in https://github.com/firnsy/barnyard2/commits/master
you will see that some nice peoples have been making their bug fixes
public 8-)

Look in "Commits on Dec 17, 2014  <at> firnsy updated: aligned snort includes
to latest upstream"
the version in Barnyard2.h jumps to
#define VER_REVISION    "13"
#define VER_BUILD    "334"

Then look at "Fix: Issue where the spooler would reuse wrongly cached
event, found"
#define VER_REVISION    "14"
#define VER_BUILD    "336"

So my question is: Where can I find the latest 'build' version of
Barnyard2 v2-1.14.336.tar.gz or higher?

Thanks in advance

Basic Help

So SNORT is a community of people so Ia m going to try to reach out to you all.

Let me explain a few things first:

#1 - I am NOT an expert so don't speak to me like one please
#2 - I am using Windows Server 2012, that is what's available
#3 - I will show you the same level of respect you show me
#4 - I am NOT an expert so my terminology may be lacking
#5 - Baby Step please I REALLY would love to sort this out
#6 - I only want to run SNORT in IDS Mode

So with that out of the way I have installed SNORT Version 2.9.7.5-WIN32 on Server 2012 64 bit OS.  I am sure this is likely my first problem. I have obtained my snortcode and downloaded my rules and have them in the c:\snort\rules folder but when I try to compile (?) my snort.conf using this command:

>snort  -i 1 -l  c:\snort\log  -c  c:\snort\etc\snort.conf  -T

I get the following :

>ERROR: c:\snort\etc\snort.conf(278) Missing/incorrect dynamic engine lib specifier. Fatal Error, Quitting..

Have tried to Google this but it turns up only old information.  Was using this site as a sort of how-to but its not very well worded plus is dated info I think?  
http://badshah-tech.blogspot.com/2012/08/install-and-configure-snort-ids-on.html

Have also attached the Snort.conf file but its only had a few changes.

Thank you in advance ~ Phil

Strange startup message

Used snort some 10 years ago and returned yesterday. Got things up and running on windows monitoring my internal home network. Everything worked great, logging, success!

 

Aborted snort, but left WinPcap running when I retired for the evening. Restarted snort using same command line args, making no changed to the config file, and received this error: ERROR: c:\snort\etc\snort.conf(0) Failed to parse the IP address: 40.25.0.3/125.123.194.119.  Tried a backup copy of the config and same error. Rebooted and Snort ran fine.

 

Is this something that WinPcap sniffed up while Snort was down and should I be worried?

 

Thanks for any help!

Snort Subscriber Rule Set License 3.1

Some of you may have noticed, upon sign in on Snort.org, you are being asked re-agree to the Snort Subscriber Rule Set license.  To make sure everyone is aware, I wanted to make sure I put out a blog post about the reset and highlight the changes that are being made to the Subscriber and Registered Rule Sets, and be as open as I can to answer any questions you may have.

Snort Subscriber Rule Set License 3.1

There are three changes to the ruleset, the first is here:
"1.5. “Limited Ruleset” means those Rules that have been expressly designated by Cisco Talos as “Limited Ruleset”, and are tagged or otherwise identified as “ruleset limited” in the ruleset."
The second is in paragraph 2.1:
"Notwithstanding the foregoing, under no circumstances may You distribute the Limited Ruleset, or any portion thereof, to a Registered User or to any third party or otherwise make the Limited Ruleset available to any third party or allow a third party to use the Limited Ruleset."



The third is in paragraph 2.2:
"Notwithstanding the foregoing, as a Registered User, You have no right or license under this Agreement to use, transfer, Modify, distribute, copy or reproduce the Limited Ruleset, or any portion thereof."

Let me break this down slightly easier, in plain english.

In upcoming weeks we will begin distributing detection and prevention to a completely new set of exploits and vulnerabilities.  The detection and prevention against these vulnerabilities (almost exclusively "zero day" type vulnerabilities) is going to be built and shipped, not only in our Shared Object rule format in a protected fashion, but will also only be made available to subscribers to the rule set as well as to Cisco FirePOWER customers.

To date, all content that has ever been in the subscriber ruleset, after 30 days, has been made available for free to the registered rule set.  That practice will still continue, except those things that are tagged "ruleset limited" in the metadata of the rule.  The rules, tagged in that fashion, again, will only be made available to subscribers, and we currently have no plans to make it available to registered users.  We currently have no plans of expanding the "limited" ruleset beyond this new set of exploits and vulnerabilities.

The VAST majority of our detection will remain exactly the way it has been for years.  Built and distributed to subscribers on the day it is released, then released 30 days later to registered users.

This offering is not only to provide detection for a new set of vulnerabilities and exploits to our customers, but also to add value to the Subscriber Rule Set, as to date, the only difference has been essentially, the release date.

A few questions you may have:

What do I have to do, if I am subscriber, to take advantage of this new detection coming?

Nothing.  It will be built into your ruleset.  If you are using pulledpork, or a custom method, to download, install, and use our Shared Object rules, then you are already good to go.

What do I have to do, if I am a registered user, and I don't want this new content?

Nothing.  You will continue to receive 30 day delayed content from the Snort Subscriber Rule Set, for free, without this new "limited" ruleset.

What do I have to do, if I am a registered user, and I do want this new content?

Subscribe.  As a reminder, the personal subscription is for home/educational use only, business subscribers have a flat rate of 399 a sensor to subscribe.  The easiest way to subscribe is via credit card, directly on Snort.org, which renews itself annually so you don't miss coverage.

What do I have to do, if I am a Snort Integrator, and I want to distribute this new content?

Nothing.  It will be built into your integrator offering already, you may re-distribute this content to your clients pursuant to the Integrator license you agreed to on Snort.org, or signed, when you became an Integrator.  As long as you are in good standing with us, you receive the content as part of your package.

What do I need to do, if I want to become a Snort Integrator, and redistribute the ruleset?

Start here first.  For those of you that are not Integrators, want to be, or used to be, you'll notice that we have eliminated the "minimum fee" we used to charge against all Integrators, and now your fee is solely based on royalty usage.

Will I be able to read the content of the rules?

Unfortunately no, we must distribute this detection in our protected Shared Object format.  (Not all Shared Object rule content is protected.)

This new content is offered to all personal, business, and Integrator subscribers of the Snort Subscriber Rule Set at no additional fee, we also have no plans of increasing the price of the ruleset, and have fought hard to keep the price the same.
