Response to: No mention of Snort

Hi !

First of all, thank you very much for taking the time to post your feedback, I really do appreciate it !

I did not mention Snort on purpose. Indeed, as powerful as this application can be, it also requires a certain level of knowledge to effectively set up -- even by using a specially packaged version of Snort.

Also, like any complex application, Snort has been at the root of security issues in the past. Would it be installed but not maintained on a daily basis, this could effectively weaken the security systems set by the user of a computer.

Thanks again !
