Re: Duplicate downloaded rules

....so let me understand this.  My current setup is:

 

/usr/local/bin/oinkmaster.pl -C /usr/local/etc/snort/oinkmaster.conf -o
/usr/local/etc/snort/rules

/usr/local/bin/create-sidmap.pl /usr/local/etc/snort/rules >
/usr/local/etc/snort/sid-msg.map

 

I need to:

Create separate directories for the two rulesets

Change the above to reflect:

 

        /usr/local/bin/oinkmaster.pl -C /usr/local/etc/vrt.conf -o
/etc/snort/rules/vrt

        /usr/local/bin/oinkmaster.pl -C /usr/local/etc/et.conf -o
/etc/snort/rules/et

 

        cp /etc/snort/rules/vrt/*.* /etc/snort/rules

        cp /etc/snort/rules/et/*.* /etc/snort/rules

Create two new oinkmaster conf files, the vrt.conf containing what's in
the attachment in the original post of the 410 rules.

Modify create-sidmap.pl line 101 to reflect:

 

        next if ($single =~ /^\#/);

 

Have I missed anything?  Thanks Jason

ET and VRT are publishing duplicate rules.

 

Read the "The New Rulesets are Ready!!" thread here

Not sure if you use Oinkmaster but I posted a solution in that thread.

        I sent this to snort-sigs a few days ago, but it got moderated
into oblivion.  Here's a pruned down one in hopes it will make it:

         

        I am seeing the below with grabbing these rulesets:

        A grand total of 409 dup messages are seen even as of this
morning.  Maybe this one will make it through...
