Looks like there are a lot of false positives being generated on

attempt. I haven't had time to review the rule itself to see if I can
figure out what the issue is exactly - I can supply data if needed.

Also - does anyone have a script that could extract the full details of
the even from the Snorby database? I have a hard time providing data
using the web-based export methods, as it doesn't contain all the
information. Thanks!

I'll second the large amounts of "false positives" on that signature.
I came in today to several hundred alerts for 17246. The signature src
addresses are fairly random (banking site, diet site, several ad
servers, etc) and all are from web traffic (tcp/80).
