Thanks for the quick responses all. I extracted both snortrules-snapshot-2901 and latest emerging-threats files, nuked
all rules files from my snort dir, copied the latest rules files, then completed redid my rules section in my
snort.conf file. All is running good now…thanks again…guess it pays to clean these out every so often.

You're using the VRT porn rules, you need to add their classifications in there too then.

These are all likely because of the duped tor and rbn rulesets in the Dir. Can you clear it and update?
I’ve had to disable the above rulesets to get snort running again, which is not a really great option currently. Using
the latest 2.9.0 ET rules, and registered 22.214.171.124 snort ruleset.
You'll have signature double coverage going this way. Highly recommend using one or the other.
