Ubuntu Security :: Snort Not Starting - ERROR: "/etc/snort/rules/exploit.rules(264) => 'fast_pattern' Does Not Take An Argument"

May 12, 2011

I need assistance with my Snort Installation. I used Bodhi Zazen's Network Intrusion Detection System post and found it easier than the previous time I had done it. I am currently running Ubuntu 10.04 server and Snort with BASE 1.4.5. I followed Bodhi Zazen's instructions and when I tested snort it ended with a Fatal Error due to ERROR: /etc/snort/rules/exploit.rules(264) => 'fast_pattern' does not take an argument
Fatal Error, Quitting.. Here is the entire output once I ran the test command: snort -c /etc/snort/snort.con -T Running in Test mode

Ubuntu Security :: Emerging Threat Rules & Snortsam?

May 30, 2010

When I upgraded to 10.4LT I agreed to something that stopped snort, after days decided to just re-do with new snort version. Used bodhi.zazen's MySql instruction version (which is what I used in the past) Everything went pretty well except for figuring out that I needed to delete all the lib_sfdynamic_preprocessor_example?? files (I also deleted all the lib_sfdynamic_example?? files too just to be safe). Used my original Oinkmaster with updated rules version and downloaded the emerging threats too (as I had in the past) and snort won't run with some of the emerging threat rules because it's lookning for snortsam (fwsam). I read up and snortsam looks like a good idea (if I'm wrong somebody just let me know)

if this seems dumb, but I really don't understand, the snortsam directions are HORRIBLE, the snortsam src looks like a windows file when unpacked with all the .dll files(but they say for all OS's), it builds but you need to copy the binary to /usr/local/bin (what in ubuntu would be a binary?).

the snortsam-patch-2.8.tar.gz won't unpack and the Snort 2.8.6 patch is a file, not a package (have no clue where to put it or what to call it if I got the 2.8.tar.gz to unpack so I could build it)

General :: Apply Kernel Patch - Couldn't Find File To Patch

I just want to upgrade my Slackware 13.1 kernel ( to the latest stable kernel from ( I have never done anything like this and I am a Linux newbie, so I would appreciate a "Kernel Patching for Dummies" version if possible. I did do a search on this forum and most of what I read was over my head. I found an FAQ on on "How To Apply A Patch" but when I attempted what they suggested, it said it couldn't find the file to patch at line 5 and asked me which file to patch. So I CTRL-Z'd out of there and came here. Here's what I tried:

Fedora Installation :: Making A Kernel Patch Work With F11 Kernel?

there is an issue with the way the Linux Kernel addresses memory by default and the graphic drivers for my Asus G1Sn. I have a patch that I had compiled against a custom kernel for 2.6.27.xx how ever it does not work with the latest kernel in Fedora 11. It is beyond me to rewrite the patch to work with a different kernel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Pulseaudio - Sound Output Or Input Does Not Work At All Doesn't Work

Sep 11, 2010

When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:

Ubuntu :: Compiz Doesn't Work - How To Make It Work

Jul 29, 2010

I'm having trouble getting compiz to work on my Laptop. It worked for a while and then I turned on Shift Switcher and a message popped up saying..."The new value for the button binding for the action Terminate in plugin Shift Switcher conflicts with the action Zoom Window of the Scale Addons plugin. Do you wish to disable Zoom Window in the Scale Addons plugin?" I was given the option of Set Terminate anyway, Don't set Terminate, and Disable Zoom Window. I clicked Don't set Terminate and ever since the only thing that works in compiz are the bindings in the general options. I've used synaptic to completely remove and then reinstall compiz but the problem persist. Something else weird, all of the changes I made are still there, even after complete removal, but they don't work?

Ubuntu :: Unity Doesn't Work - How To Make It Work

Feb 16, 2011

I just recently (about an hour ago) installed Ubuntu Netbook edition on my old laptop, and I was greeted with the message, that unity could not be run due to some sort of missing driver...fair enough, I was then greeted with the default Ubuntu desktop, I installed all my needed software (wine, google chrome) and installed the missing display drivers. I then rebooted the system, and once again I am stuck with the default desktop, and not the Unity interface. I checked the software center, and it says Unity IS in fact installed.. And yet I cannot make it appear. So now I ask you Ubuntu veterans. How do I make it work?

P.S. I wiped the system of windows, and the computer is an old HP Pavilion DV6000

Debian :: Better Way To Set Up SNORT IDS?

Oct 31, 2010

I am running Debian 5 and I'm trying to install and configure SNORT. My first stop is to where I check out the directions. They tell me I need Libpcap, PCRE, Libnet and Barnyard. I've looked at the Debian Snort installation guide, and I've noticed that most the documents are really old...

I've actually got libpcap and PCRE installed and now I'm trying to figure out how to get libnet installed. It seems more tricky. I think it's the oldest api I've seen.

I guess my main area of question is if there is a better way of getting Snort up and running... I had a previous version of Linux where I install just Snort and I had network packets streaming across the screen, but that's not very helpful as I need some kind of interface so I know what the hell im looking at.

So should I follow the instructions on as well as the "Debian, Snort, Barnyard, BASE, & Oinkmaster Setup Guide"? Or does anyone know a more up-to-date guide for Debian users?

Ubuntu Security :: Snort: Convert From IDS To IPS

Feb 4, 2011

I am currently running snort as an IDS on the same machine that acts as our gateway. I installed it using sudo apt-get install snort. However, I'd like to make it run as an IPS. Is it possible to convert that currently running snort instance from running as an IDS to an IPS without having to download the snort tar balls and install it? I do not want the tar balls because during updates and upgrades, I'd like the whole OS and installed apps (such as snort) to be upgraded.

Security :: Snort And MS Threat Protection Manager?

Feb 24, 2011

I work in a relatively small organisation of about 30 people (but with a complex network) and we've been looking to move our firewall to Microsoft's Threat Protection Manager on a mostly Windows network. I've been thinking we should have an IDS/IPS inside the firewall and I've been thinking about Snort in NIDS mode but have some basic questions:

1. Can anyone recommend a good web GUI for Snort?

2. Is it advisable to run both on the same machine? (Both from a POV of security and resources.)

3. Would Snort add any real benifit to using TPM?

After I restart snort and I tied 2 pc by cross cable ( for windows and the victim is for Linux where the snort is installed), my HOME_NET and the EXTEREL_NET !$HOME_NET. The problem is when I run:
