Snort Rule Update for Aug. 28, 2018

Cisco Talos has just released the new Snort Rule update for Aug. 28, 2018.

In this release, we introduced 31 new rules, two of which are Shared Object rules. There were no rule modifications in this release.

The new rules provide additional coverage for several critical vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader that could allow an attacker to arbitrarily execute code on a victim machine. There is also protection against the recently discovered Marap malware, which has been spotted in the wild targeting financial institutions.

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

Talos would like to thank the following individuals for their contributions, their rules are included in the Community Ruleset:
