oh also, 1 thing I really dislike about surricata is the fact that you have the option to configure it via terminal or via web UI :puke:
it's a shame there's no option to disable the web server AND have a quality C++/(Qt, Gtk) local UI to configure it from
that's actually 1 thing that P's me off honestly...
everyone wants to work on a web UI and then turn around and claim "oh yeah it's absolutely secure"
when web technologies are proven to be one of the most hackable things on the planet...
ActiveX died for a good reason, it's a shame electron+node.js had to resurrect it >.<
it's not even conveinient to build with electron, python or java is 10x better if that's what you're looking for, and those are just as bad by default.
heck python even runs faster with much less overhead, and that's not even including py_C
but I think I'll stop here or this post will become a book long rant about programming blindness
