Any thoughts on the longer term, Johannes?

Just out of curiosity, what proportion of the logs submitted are from
Snort? If snort has already identified the exploit from its fingerprint,
seems like a shame to throw the info away. Could another field be added
to the database to hold this?

Could it make it easier to spot the rise of a new exploit? A rise in
'unidentified' exploits might be more easily identified amongst the
noise generated by the old ones...

I would be very interested to see the percentages of the different
scanners, worms, etc. active out there, which isn't always obvious from
the target port alone.
