Snort rule update for Aug. 30, 2018

Just released:
Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for Aug. 30, 2018

We know everyone is still buzzing about the announcement yesterday that Snort 3 is now in beta, but the protection of our users still comes first, so as always, we have the new rule update for Snort here.

In this release, we introduced 16 new rules, of which four are Shared Object rules. There are also two modified rules.

This release covers several vulnerabilities in Cisco products, including TelePresence. We are also continuing development of new rules for the slew of Adobe vulnerabilities that have been disclosed over the past few weeks.

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

Cisco Talos's rule release:

  • New SO rules: 4
  • New Rules: 14
  • Modified Rules: 2
