Query IPS (snort) Rules on Endpoint

Many thanks to  for the assist on completing this query. It may be valuable to discover what rule sets are currently deployed to your snort (IPS) engine. 

WITH ips_rule_table AS (SELECT * FROM grep WHERE path = 'C:\ProgramData\Sophos\Sophos Network Threat Protection\IPS\system.rules' AND pattern = '(msg:'),
ips_rule_descr AS (
SELECT
SPLIT(line, ' ', 0) Rule_Action,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 1)) Protocol,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 2)) Source_Addr,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 3)) Source_Port,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 4)) Direction,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 5)) Destination_Addr,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 6)) Destination_Port,
SPLIT(substr(line,instr(line,'msg:"')+5,LENGTH(line)-instr(line,'msg:"')),'"',0) Rule
FROM ips_rule_table)
SELECT * FROM ips_rule_descr

We can also take the information and filter to a specific CVE by defining a variable.

##DEFINE STRING OPERATOR VARIABLE AS Vuln-Numb

LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 1)) Protocol,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 2)) Source_Addr,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 3)) Source_Port,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 4)) Direction,
LTRIM(SPLIT(line, ' ', 5)) Destination_Addr,

FROM ips_rule_table)
SELECT * FROM ips_rule_descr
WHERE Rule
LIKE '%CVE-$$Vuln-Numb$$%'
