I have a question about how Snort detects and prevent brute force attacks.
E.g.: I use hydra to bruteforce a remote SSH server knowing the username and
going thru a list of possible pwds.

rules would be written either with thresholds built into them or one would use 
the threshold.conf file on those rules... this to be able to quantify the number 
of attempts within X period of time...
