Snort rule update for May 20, 2019

Just released:
Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for May 20, 2019

Last night, Cisco Talos released the latest SNORTⓇ rule set. This release includes 18 new rules, three of which are shared object rules. There are also eight modified rules.

This release includes coverage for indicators associated with CVE-2019-0708, a remote code execution vulnerability in Microsoft Remote Desktop Services — formerly known as Terminal Services. This is a highly publicized vulnerability from Microsoft, which the company disclosed last week as part of its monthly security update. The vulnerability is wormable, meaning future malware that exploits this bug could spread from system to system.

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 deleted, file-flash, file-other, file-pdf, malware-cnc, os-windows and server-webapp rule sets to provide coverage for emerging threats from these technologies.
You can subscribe to Talos' newest rule detection functionality for as low as $29 a year with a personal account. Be sure and see our business pricing as well here. Make sure and stay up to date to catch the most emerging threats.
