Snort rule update for Aug. 20, 2020

Cisco Talos released the newest SNORTⓇ rule set this morning. 

The latest update includes 18 new rules, five modified rules and four new shared object rules. 

Thursday's release includes several new rules to protect against a decades-old vulnerability recently discovered in Windows machines. The bug could allow an adversary to stop the print spooler process. There's also coverage for CVE-2020-12648, an arbitrary code execution vulnerability in the TinyMCE HTML text editor.

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 file-flash, file-multimedia, malware-cnc, malware-other, malware-tools, os-other, os-windows, policy-other and server-webapp rule sets to provide coverage for emerging threats from these technologies.
