Product Synopsis:

mySnortWatchman was developed to fill a need for a data shunt for Windows between the mySQL output from the intrusion detection system (IDS) Snort and the free, automated internet abuse reporting service myNetWatchman.

In its current form, mySnortWatchman can run either as a Windows service or as a normal application. It watches for additions to a Snort mySQL database, filters them, and writes them to a text log which can them be watched by myNetWatchman for changes using log file format "Reserved23". I have been using mySnortWatchman successfully for a number of years to perform this task. It does not, however, had a proper user interface. There are limited controls built into the service system tray presence, but configuration settings are set from the Windows registry. This is very easy and effective, but not ideal for users unfamiliar with registry editing.

After completing what I considered phase one of the project, which was the service itself, I announced my success with mySnortWatchman on the myNetWatchman newsgroup and contacted the author of myNetWatchman. I explained that, in its present form, it was perfectly usable for my own purposes, and that I would be willing to write a user-interface for configuration if there was interest. However, I received no replies from either the author or on the newsgroup, so I abandoned phase two.

Because no interface was written for configuration, I have chosen not to make it available publicly. Should I be contacted in the future by a sufficient number of people or by myNetWatchman's author, I would be willing to release it and possibly develop a small configuration utility as well.
