    Hi all,

    For those of you that were interested, Snort did not detect the DNS
    version query from Sidestep.

    Kind Regards,

    Jill Tovey

    Can you respond to attacks based on attack type, severity, source IP,
    destination IP, number of times attacked, or the time of day an attack
    occurs? No?
    No wonder why you're swamped with false positives!
    Download a free 15-day trial of Border Guard and watch your false
    positives disappear.
