Hi,

Using latest version snort on Debian. When something is logged in /var/log/snort/alerts

Does that mean snort blocked that traffic or its just an alert.

Thanks

It wiil show you all the alerts. All the alerts will include according to the rulebase that you have set. It will have alerts for every traffic that is being checked even for the blocked traffic.

So its just alerts.
