Sourcefire VRT Certified Snort Rules Update for 10/09/2012, MS Tuesday

Just released:
Sourcefire VRT Certified Snort Rules Update for 10/09/2012

We welcome the introduction of the newest rule release for today from the VRT. In this release we introduced 12 new rules and made modifications to 16 additional rules.

The following changes were made to the snort.conf:

portvar HTTP_PORTS [80,81,311,591,593,901,1220,1414,1741,1830,2301,2381,2809,3128,3702,4343,4848,5250,7001,7145,7510,7777,7779,8000,8008,8014,8028,8080,8088,8090,8118,8123,8180,8181,8243,8280,8800,8888,8899,9000,9080,9090,9091,9443,9999,11371,55555] 

now reads:

portvar HTTP_PORTS [80,81,311,591,593,901,1220,1414,1741,1830,2301,2381,2809,3128,3702,4343,4848,5250,7001,7145,7510,7777,7779,8000,8008,8014,8028,8080,8088,8090,8118,8123,8180,8181,8243,8280,8800,8888,8899,9000,9060,9080,9090,9091,9443,9999,11371,55555] 

(Addition of 9060)

The port was also added to stream5 and http_inspect's configuration lines.
