Snort rule update for July 2, 2019

Just released:
Snort Subscriber Rule Set Update for July 2, 2019

Cisco Talos released the latest SNORTⓇ rule set today. This release includes 102 new rules and 10 modified rules, none of which are shared object rules.

This release provides new coverage for the Scranos malware, a data-stealing attack that its creators recently revitalized. The series of new rules prevents Scranos from making an outbound connection and also blocks it from downloading its final payload.

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-firefox, file-flash, malware-cnc, malware-other, 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.
