Hi,

Yes, we greatly improved error checking on Snort 2.9.0.3:

http://blog.snort.org/2010/12/snort-2903-is-coming-soon.html

We are going to put a blog post up about it soon.

Did you notify ET of these issues or just post them on the blog?  I don't recall
seeing this one on the list so it may have been direct to the ET crew.

Quoted below:

"This is another issue found internally while troubleshooting for
Emerging-Threats. VRT rules are not affected by this change.

If rule writers have invalid combinations that existed in custom rules (depth
with within, or distance with no relative content match, etc) Snort will now
error on this. The Snort Manual has been updated to reflect these facts."

I imagine you've already reached out to the ET crew and just didn't rely on the
blog entry only to notify ET of these issues.  I likely missed the communication
with ET so I'll bite my tongue with respect to what exactly "OpenSource
community" is.

Joel
