GitHub user cestella opened a pull request:

    METRON-488: Snort should use a proper CSV implementation

    Right now if you have a custom snort rule (e.g. alert tcp any any -> any any (msg:'snort
alert message having a ,(comma) to check csv parsing'; sid:999158; ) ) the snort parser will
fail to parse because it's splitting on the comma naively.
    It should use the existing CSV parsing infrastructure that we have and that is used in
the CSVParser.

You can merge this pull request into a Git repository by running:

    $ git pull snort_delim_bug
