Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for 09/03/2015, Limited Ruleset 0day Coverage!

Just released:
Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for 09/03/2015

This is the first ruleset to contain information released under the "limited ruleset" clause of the 3.1 Snort Subscriber Rule Set License.  You may recall the blog post written in August that outlined the updates to the license.  As a reminder, this additional content is only available:

  • As part of the Subscriber Rule Set (and will never be made available in the Registered Rule Set)
  • In Shared Object pre-compiled format
Please read the above blog post to gain access to this new detection functionality, which is entirely comprised of "0day" exploit and vulnerability coverage.  You will see coverage for vulnerabilities in a variety of software, including Internet Explorer and Adobe Reader that have never been released before.

We welcome the introduction of the newest rule release from Talos. In this release we introduced 92 new rules and made modifications to 25 additional rules.

There were no changes made to the snort.conf in this release.
