A new podcast hits the airwaves

Last night Dr. Johannes and I sat down and recorded the first podcast of the Internet Storm Center.  Episode One.  The audio on my mic at the beginning is a bit low (I wasn't close enough to the mic), and Johannes's mic almost the whole way through was red peaking.  (I had him turned up too loud).  We recorded the whole thing over Skype, and I used Garargeband to master the sound.  It was pretty cool.  I am still learning how to use Garageband, so you might have to bear with me for a couple podcasts still, but I'm getting it.  In total there are about 8 tracks on the podcast, all requiring equalization and mastering, fading in and out, album art... etc.  So, it was kind of interesting.  

You can get the podcast through iTunes here.  (Hit subscribe, it'll download the newest one)  Or for you non-iTunes users, you can get it here.  Right now I only have it available in m4a (aac compression), but we should get the mp3 up very soon.  (I ran out of time last night, screaming baby and all)

On another note...

Paul of PaulDotCom and I were talking this morning about some potential podcast ideas, and we think we have come up with a good idea.  So those of you that are involved in podcasting about security, please start watching your inbox for emails from me/paul/johannes involved an idea we may have.  I know many of you read this blog either directly or through a syndicated feed, so, keep an eye out.

Offset, Depth, Distance, and Within

Without going off the deep-end here and discussing every single Snort rule keyword, I just wanted to touch on a few modifiers that people sometimes misunderstand.  They aren't difficult, and hopefully after this explanation and a few examples, I can clear some of the air around these five modifiers.

The five modifiers that I am talking about are
OffsetDepthDistanceWithinnocaseThese five modifiers are not keywords of themselves, but rather they apply as modifiers to another keyword.  That keyword is "content". The content keyword is one of the easiest pieces of the Snort rules language as all it does is look for a particular string.  So for instance if I wanted to look for the word "joel" within a packet.  A simple:
content:"joel";Would allow me to do that.  The interesting part comes into play when you want to specify where inside of a particular packet you want the string "joel" to be looked for.  If you are running just a plain content ma…

Writing Snort Rules Correctly

Let me start off by saying I'm not bashing the writer of this article, and I'm trying not to be super critical.  I don't want to discourage this person from writing articles about Snort rules.  It's great when people in the Snort community step up and explain some simple things out there.  There are mistakes, it comes with the territory.  If you choose to be one of the people that tries to write Snort rules, you also choose to be someone who wants to learn how to do it better.  That's why I write this blog post, not to bash the writer, but to teach.

I noticed this post today over at the "Tao of Signature Writing" blog, and to be honest I glanced over most of it figuring it was a rehash of things I've already read or things that have already been written from countless people about "Here's how you write Snort rules!".  I scrolled down quickly skimming, not reading at all really, and noticed this part:
Now, let us look at the second questio…
