Snort rule update for July 28, 2020

This morning, Cisco Talos released a new rule update for SNORTⓇ.

The latest release includes 14 new rules and six new shared object rules.

This release includes several new rules to protect against the Hakbit ransomware attack that researchers discovered last month. Hakbit, so far, has targeted numerous organizations in Europe via phishing emails with malicious Excel files attached.

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, malware-cnc, malware-other and server-webapp rule sets to provide coverage for emerging threats from these technologies.
