[Oisf-users] Alternatives to ET Pro?

My understanding is the same fairly knowledgeable folks are still on
the ET rule set ship, although good to know about the price increase.

I haven't seen any reference to 2815810 on the etpro list, and that
hasn't been my experience with cpu usage and suricata v3. Not trying
to change your mind or anything, just my experience, my org is a
subscriber to the rules as well. We've also noticed some Dyre payload
alerts recently that appear overly liberal with pcre and pattern
matching, without actually receiving a payload.

Have you looked at snort's paid rule set? Can't speak to quality
recently, we haven't used it in a couple of years.
