Snort rule update for April 2, 2020 — Microsoft Patch Tuesday

Apologies for the radio silence on the blog over the past week weeks. The Snort communications team was settling into a new schedule. But that doesn't mean the rule updates haven't been rolling in.

We just released a new SNORTⓇ rule update this morning with 20 new rules, two modified rules, two modified shared object rules and 12 new shared object rules.

Today's release provides protection against the Agent Tesla malware, which recently saw a spike connected to COVID-19-related spam.

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-chrome, deleted, file-other, 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.
