Your network is being scanned for vulnerabilities. This may happen only once a

and systems for weaknesses. This documentation will show how you can protect yourself
by installing an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) with free available Software (Snort,
PHP, MySQL, ACID) on a Linux Mandrake 9.2 System."
