Podcast Episode Nine Posted

Okay, so after much crazyness concerning the Live Podcast from SANSFIRE of Episode 9, its finally posted.

So to give you a quick run down on what took us so long to get this thing posted, all of the mics that we were being used was going into a Soundboard, and the Soundboard audio was going directly out to a DVD recorder. The DVD recorder also had video In from a camera in the back of the room that was being manned during the podcast.

Turns out, the camera was also recording! Isn't that awesome? Well, turns out, there is alot of FAIL in this story.

The camera, has mysteriously vanished. Don't know where it went, but in it somewhere wherever it is, is a recording of the podcast. If someone finds this mythical recording, please, feel free to give me the video/audio off of what is inside it.

Wait, you say, what about the DVD Recorder? Well, we got the DVD, but the DVD has a big fat scratch down the middle of it, and we can't get the video off of it.

But luckily, I had garageband open, and I recorded the podcast using my built in mic on my macbook pro. Now, this is not the best audio in the whole wide world, but at the time, we had no alternative. So THAT's what the audio from the podcast is. Not out of the soundboard, not off of a video camera, but off of my built in mic on the MacBook Pro.

As a result the audio of some of the people, unless they were loud, or speaking into a mic, is not the best. You'll hear some of this in the beginning, but once we got everyone speaking into mics, and being loud, it gets a bit better.

You'll also hear me whispering for beer at some point in the beginning, just disregard that, beer was needed. :)


UPDATE: Probably helps if I put a URL right?

That sucks! I've experienced some issues of my own dealing with audio/video at live recordings, like forgetting to push the record button on uStream at RSA. But I haven't lost any equipment yet, thankfully. Maybe because the first thing I do is always collect my equipment at the end. Anyways, if you want to see a silly, flawed video podcast recording from Defcon, check 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…
