You need to provide details and, if at all possible, a test case that
reproduces the problem.  You should probably send these to me privately
rather than via the mailing list, unless others on the list indicate that
they've encountered a similar problem.

It would be best to do this using Bro's new signature engine.  Currently,
worm.bro is only for detecting HTTP-based worms.

Unfortunately, it will be just as difficult, or more so, to explain how
to do this via email as for you to learn how to do so from the manual
plus inspecting the policy scripts that come with the Bro distribution.
