[Snort-sigs] New Signature

I apologize for wasting everyone's time & e-mail space. This rule isn't 
completed yet. It only catches what it's supposed to catch when the attacker 
has it reply reporting a certain IP/port.

The part of the datagram that does stay the same are these 6 bytes but for 
some reason (perhaps some syntax error) this rule won't catch the packet 
alert udp $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET any (msg: "SubSeven 2.2 SIN 
Beacon"; dsize: 14; content: "|8177 9e9c 696e|"; depth: 6;)

The 6 bytes mentioned above are the first in the datagram so I mentioned no 
offset, but for some reason it still won't catch. If any of the core 
developers knows what may be wrong feel free to fix it, otherwise I guess we 
can drop it here.

Again sorry to bother everyone,
Michael Anuzis
