Managing custom intrusion signatures

Note: Use custom signatures with caution because the Smoothwall Filter and Firewall can't verify custom signature integrity.

WARNING: If you delete custom signatures, the Smoothwall Filter and Firewall deletes all custom signatures. If there are detection or prevention policies that use custom signatures, the signatures are deleted from the policies.
