Sig 5753 (s230) - numerous fale positives + proposed fix

To make a long story short: I was investigating a bunch of these signatures firing, and found that simple poor coding (typos, mostly) were triggering all of our events with this sig.

I ran through the RegExp, and discovered that the string stops processing after a double quote ("").

So, a simple typo that ends with ...href="""> will trigger this signature to fire (as it has done many times in our case).

The simple solution I've found would be to add a "not closing tag" ( [^\x3e]+ ) to the end of the RegExp, as such:


With that RegExp, if there's anything between the "" and the >, the sig will trigger.

Hopefully, the fine folks at Cisco can include this in a sig update in the near future.
