Bro signatures parse error?

Hi all,

I compiled Bro 0.8a34 & 0.8a20 on a FreeBSD 4.5 box, when I launch Bro with shipped signatures, I get parse error, anyone else encounted the same problem?

for the 0.8a34 package:
[root@ /root/source/bro-pub-0.8a34]> uname -a
FreeBSD FreeBSD_4_5 4.5-RELEASE FreeBSD 4.5-RELEASE #0: Mon Jan 28 14:31:56 GMT 2002 i386
[root@ /root/source/bro-pub-0.8a34]> ls *.bro
sig.ex.ssl-worm.bro sig.ex.web-rules.bro
[root@ /root/source/bro-pub-0.8a34]> ./bro -F -i lnc0 -s sig.ex.web-rules.bro -S mt
Error in signature (sig.ex.web-rules.bro:8): parse error
[root@ /root/source/bro-pub-0.8a34]> ./bro -F -i lnc0 -s sig.ex.ssl-worm.bro -S mt
Error in signature (sig.ex.ssl-worm.bro:10): parse error

for the 0.8a20 package, sig.ex.web-rules.bro can be correctly handled, but sig.ex.ssl-worm.bro also has parse error:
[root@ /root/source/bro-pub-0.8a34]> cd ../bro-pub-0.8a20
[root@ /root/source/bro-pub-0.8a20]> ./bro -F -i lnc0 -s sig.ex.web-rules.bro mt
listening on lnc0
^C1063411972.838423 received termination signal

[root@ /root/source/bro-pub-0.8a20]> ./bro -F -i lnc0 -s sig.ex.ssl-worm.bro -S mt
Error in rule (line 11): unknown identifier
Error in rule (line 19): unknown identifier
Error in rule (line 27): unknown identifier

I also compiled Bro on a RedHat 7.1 box and got the same error. Any hints or suggestions are welcome!

best regards

Some of the keywords have been renamed in newer versions, and I
forgot to adapt the examples. The attacked patch should fix
the problems (note that for sig.ex.ssl-worm.bro you need to load
policy/ssl-worm.bro, too).

Thanks for your great help! Patched signatures now can be handled
correctly. There is still a minor problem , when I launch Bro with -S
option, Bro core dumps, it seems a problem in the code of printing debug

[root@ /usr/local/sbin]> ./bro -s sig.ex.web-rules.bro -S -i lnc0 mt

option, Bro core dumps, it seems a problem in the code of printing debug

I cannot reproduce this here. Could you send me stack backtrace
generated from the core dump?

ssl-worm.bro also needs a little modification to work, attached is the
patch for 0.8a34 package

It seems stack has been corrupted.

I tried the lastest 0.8a37 package, it does not have this problem.

This is interesting as there isn't any change in the signature code.
So, it may be worth a look nevertheless.
