        Hrmm....that's confusing then...oinkmaster says:

        Yet:

        [08:11:48 me () ids:~/rules$] sudo grep 17363 *.rules

        web-client.rules:alert tcp $EXTERNAL_NET $HTTP_PORTS ->
$HOME_NET any (msg:"WEB-CLIENT Apple computer finder DMG volume name
memory corruption"; flow:to_client,established; content:"|4C 41 42 4C|";

security-ips drop, service http; reference:cve,2007-0197;
classtype:attempted-user; sid:17363; rev:1;)

         

        Are rules not getting updated in 2900?  Or is my oinkmaster not
doing what it's supposed to do?  Thanks for any help.

        Actually, this rule is currently at rev:3 - adding a flowbit
check and some additional bytes to the content match - due to earlier
false positive reports. If you get further FPs with the current revision
of the rule, please let us know.

        Hi James,
        maybe for "small" reduce FP add "isdataat:255,relative;" after
byte_test()?
        another maybe null byte are separator? and instead
"isdataat:255,relative; content:!"|00|"; within:255;" ?
