    with all the fuss lately over the new apache worm, etc, id like to know
    if my machine is getting hit (its patched, just being curious). i know
    about mod_blowchunks, but im looking for something more general..

    it seems to me that snort could see these attacks pretty easily.

    is there a tool/method out there that will retrieve the *latest* snort
    signatures automatically? for those of us not running snort via CVS, id
    like a way to do something like cvsup, but _only_ update my ruleset
    every night or whatever.

    i cc: the freebsd team as this might be a cool (simple) port. (something
    like /usr/ports/security/snort-signatures)

    this could be helpful to people who are just curious, or maybe could
    provide some good numbers to shock lazy sysadmins into actually patching
    their machines.

    ..of course, this is all assuming there's someone out there writing
    signatures ;)
