Snort rule update for Feb. 20, 2020

Cisco Talos just released the latest SNORT® rule update for all users. Talos urges all users to implement these rules as soon as possible to keep their networks and machines protected.

Today's release contains 46 new rules and nine new shared object rules.

This rule update provides several new protections against malware we're calling "ObliqueRAT." We will be publishing details about this RAT on the Talos blog later today.
Talos has added and modified multiple rules in the browser-ie, browser-plugins, file-pdf, malware-cnc, malware-other, policy-other 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.
