Description

Originally came across this in 6.0.2, but 6.0.4 and tuning made this less present. Far less present in 6.0.5-dev, but still randomly happens, just less so.

For some reason the payload field does not get added to the Eve alert JSON, even though though packet field is populoaded.

The rule that resulted in it is as below.

"rule": "alert tcp $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET $HTTP_PORTS (msg:\"MALWARE-CNC User-Agent known malicious user-agent string - Mirai\"; flow:to_server,established; content:\"User-Agent|3A| Hello, world\"; fast_pattern:only; http_header; metadata:impact_flag red, policy balanced-ips drop, policy max-detect-ips drop, policy security-ips drop, service http; reference:url,www.virustotal.com/en/file/3908cc1d8001f926031fbe55ce104448dbc20c9795b7c3cfbd9abe7b789f899d/analysis/; classtype:trojan-activity; sid:58992; rev:1;)",

I've attached a anonymized PCAP of it.
