Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for June 18, 2019

Cisco Talos released the latest SNORTⓇ rule set today. This release includes 12 new rules and 10 modified, none of which are shared object rules.

This release provides protection against the new HiddenWasp malware, which has been spotted in the wild targeting Linux systems. This attack shares similarities with other, previous Linux malware. Researchers believe some of the code may have even copy and pasted from other actors.

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, malware-cnc, malware-tools, os-windows and server-webapp rule sets to provide coverage for emerging threats from these technologies.
