Just released:
Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for Oct. 2, 2018

Today, Cisco Talos released the newest SNORTⓇ rule update. In this release, we introduced 79 new rules, none of which are shared object rules. There are also 22 modified rules.

This release mainly covers more than 80 vulnerabilities that Adobe recently disclosed in its Acrobat and Reader products. An attacker could exploit these bugs to execute code in the context of 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 browser-plugins, file-image, file-other and malware-cnc rule sets to provide coverage for emerging threats from these technologies.
