Summary0000583: Snort Rules Location Incorrect?
DescriptionIt could be me and my misunderstanding of snort so please forgive me if the issue is really not an actual issue. Looking at the /etc/snort/snort.conf.tmpl on line 29 "var RULE_PATH /etc/snort/rules" seems to be incorrect. Shouldn't it be "var RULE_PATH /etc/snort" as the current rules folder does exist but is completly empty. The snort rules are being downloaded to /etc/snort and are there and have a .rules extension. The rules were downloaded by EFW web interface (services-intrusion detection-download new ruleset). In addition, shouldn't the snort.conf.tmpl include a section similiar to this:

##Customize your rule set
include $RULE_PATH/local.rules
include $RULE_PATH/bad-traffic.rules
include $RULE_PATH/exploit.rules

Thanks for a great product once the bugs are worked out.
