Snort rule update for March 5, 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 eight new rules, 10 new shared object rules and 292 modified rules.

This rule set primarily covers a series of vulnerabilities Cisco disclosed earlier this week in Webex Player and Webex Network Recording Player. While Cisco has already released updates for these bugs, Snort rules 53384 - 53392 provide an additional layer of protection by preventing adversaries from corrupting memory on affected devices.

Talos has added and modified multiple rules in the file-flash, malware-cnc, malware-other and server-other 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.
