This morning, Cisco Talos released the latest rule update for SNORTⓇ.

The latest release includes 16 new rules, 12 modified rules, nine modified shared object rules and six new shared object rules.

Today's release provides new coverage for the Trickbot malware family, which was recently used in a spam campaign associated with fake emails alleging to be from the U.S. Department of Labor. We also have rules protecting against CVE-2020-3280, a critical remote code execution vulnerability in Cisco Unified Contact Center.

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-ie, file-multimedia, file-office, file-other, indicator-shellcode, malware-cnc, malware-other, policy-other and server-webapp rule sets to provide coverage for emerging threats from these technologies.
