[Dshield] Snort log processing...

The snort client reads the alert file. It uses the Unix perl "framework"
client and may require some tweaking as the log format has changed over

If you submit snort logs, make sure you apply some filters to avoid
submitting false positives. We had a few people install
snort with default rules and submit logs based on that. This
is usually not a good idea.

For the PIX: The Unix perl client should support this. It will read from
the file written by syslog (/var/log/messages or wherever you put the
PIX messages).
