Brian Little created BIT-1051:

             Summary: smtp-url-extraction.bro misses/truncates urls between data chunks
                 Key: BIT-1051
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1051
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: Bro
    Affects Versions: git/master
            Reporter: Brian Little
            Priority: Low

Files::add_analyzer(f, Files::ANALYZER_DATA_EVENT, [$stream_event=intel_mime_data]);

event intel_mime_data(f: fa_file, data: string) {}

I think the file analysis framework sends the data through to the intel_mime_data event in sections (appears that way from adding print debugging). The cutting point between the data sections can fall in the middle of an url, causing the regex to miss the url, or truncate it.

What would be the recommended way around for this? (and other usage of file analysis framework)
