Snort rule update for Sept. 19, 2018

Just released:
Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for Sept. 19, 2018

We welcome the introduction of the newest rule release from Talos. In this release, we introduced eight new rules, none of which are shared object rules. There are also seven modified rules.

This rule release primarily covers vulnerabilities that were recently disclosed in Adobe Acrobat and Reader. The two products contain a series of critical and important bugs that could allow an attacker to execute code on the victim machine with the same rights as the current user.

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

Talos's rule release:
Talos has added and modified multiple rules in the file-image, file-other, file-pdf and server-webapp rule sets to provide coverage for emerging threats from these technologies.
