Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2008-06-05 14:55:16 UTC
There is an error in /etc/snort/rules/web-misc.rules, line 452

Jun  5 16:49:26 s363 snort[5100]: FATAL ERROR: ERROR /etc/snort/rules/web-misc.rules Line 452 => unable to parse pcre regex "fn=Eye\d{4}_\d{2}.log/Rmsi"

After removing the line, it works.

No emerge --info needed.

Mine loads.  No commenting out.  It seems that more data is needed.  That or close this bug.

It's still there, if you use  /etc/snort/snort.conf.distrib.

There is a new ebuild for snort-2.8.4 at the following bug...

bug#266288

This ebuild resolves this issue. Make sure you update your rules.

Still an issue with 2.8.4-r1 ?
