             Summary: fatal error Val::CONVERTER
                 Key: BIT-1090
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1090
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: Bro
    Affects Versions: 2.1
         Environment: Ubuntu 10.04.03 LTS, bro 2.1-179
            Reporter: tyler.schoenke
         Attachments: my-detect-bruteforcing.bro, sigsup-ssh-pass2.bro

Hi guys,

I get the following message when I modified a data structure in detect-bruteforcing.bro.  I didn't get a chance to test against the current version, but did a quick check against the mailing lists and tracker and didn't see this issue mentioned.

$ bro  my-detect-bruteforcing.bro sigsup-ssh-pass2.bro
fatal error in ./sigsup-ssh-pass2.bro, line 2: Val::CONVERTER (types/table) (

Here is the modification to detect-bruteforcing.bro:

	const ignore_guessers: table[subnet] of set[subnet] = {} &redef;

I found the need to whitelist from a single host to multiple subnets instead of a single subnet.  The following minimal script will produce the error.

cat sigsup-ssh-pass2.bro
redef SSH::ignore_guessers = {
	[] = set( )

Any help would be appreciated.
