pclinuxos reporting threats when running clamtk and they relate to snort
a general scan from clamtk results in 70 odd 'threats' but these relate to snort which does not appear to be installed correctly, I ran "ps -A | grep snort" and get nothing when I expect at least one line of activity. This might be because I have updated using "apt-upgrade" instead of "apt-upgrade-distro". All in all a confusing mixture of deb associated commands and rpm.
What I want to know is, are the 'threats' a result of my incompetence or real?
I am running LXDE and think some of the functions/programs are cloud based.
