Spam fun

My name is Sgt Jeff Frawley I am an American soldier in peace keeping force in Iraq,

No you're not.

I am serving in the military of the 1st Armored Division in Iraq, as you know insurgents everyday and car bombs are attacking us.

You mean insurgents and car bombs are attacking us everyday? Do they teach grammar anymore?

We managed to move funds belonging to Saddam Hussein's family.

No, you didn't.

The total amount is US$ 12 Million dollars in cash. We want to move this money to you, so that you may keep our share for us till when we will come over to meet you.

No, you don't. You didn't find the money, you wouldn't just email someone out of the blue, you'd try and smuggle that stuff in your pants. Besides, sew it into the spaces in your ruck sack. Come on, get inventive.

We will take 60%, my partner and I.You take 40%.

Actually, if I am moving your money, I'll take 90, you take 10. How about that? Since I am pretty much taking all the risk, I'll take the majority of the money. And since you pretty much have no alternatives because you are apparently stupid and just email me out of the blue on the Internet, you have no alternatives!

No strings attached, just help us move it out of Iraq, Iraq is a war zone.

No kidding? I thought it was the McDonald's Play area.

We plan on using diplomatic courier and shipping the money out in two large boxes, using diplomatic immunity.

So what do you need me for?

If you are interested I will send you the full details, my job is to find a good partner that we can trust and that will assist us. Can I trust you?

Sure, if your terms are in line with mine, above. 90-10.

If you are capable of handling this with me, kindly send me an e-mail signifying your interest including your most confidential telephone/fax numbers for quick communication also your contact details. This business is risk free the boxes can be shipped out in 48hrs.

My "Most" confidential telephone and fax numbers? Really? Is there such a thing? (oh yeah, because the NSA isn't monitoring communications...

BTW -- don't believe scams like this. Come on! You KNOW this is false, and I know you probably are reading my website because you Googled this same email if you got it. Don't fall victim to this kind of thing, of course it's fake!

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…
