Network IDS/IPS: Real world examples of IDS/IPS failure

Hi All!

Currently I am looking into network based IDS/IPS and I was wondering if anybody knows some good real world examples of IDS/IPS failures.

One example I could think of was the failure of ids in the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) when it was the subject of a massive cyber attack in 2015. There were security issues with EINSTEIN allowing hackers to infiltrate OPM’s network after they initially gained entry via a “zero day” exploit.

Any other good examples of IDS and/or IPS? :■■■■

fails in networks: Applications connected > any ISP not safe for exemple, exploit connections active…
