Summary: A libpcap-based packet sniffer and logger.
Snort is a libpcap-based packet sniffer/logger which can be used as a
lightweight network intrusion detection system.
It features rules based logging and can perform protocol analysis,
content searching/matching and can be used to detect a variety of
attacks and probes, such as buffer overflows, stealth port scans, CGI
attacks, SMB probes, OS fingerprinting attempts, and much more.
Snort has a real-time alerting capabilty, with alerts being sent to syslog,
a seperate "alert" file, or as a WinPopup message via Samba's smbclient

Be sure to fetch the latest snort rules file from the ArachNIDS database
by Max Vision, or the one available from the web site.

The snortlog and snort-stat perl scripts can be used to generate statistics
from the snort syslog entries.

Snort is by default configured to listen only on eth0, and uses the default
rulesets. If this is not correct for your system, edit /etc/init.d/snortd
and /etc/snort/snort.conf
