[Snort-sigs] Rule for Sobig.F

I spent some time today looking at the copius examples of Sobig.F that
we've been seeing through the day and have come up with a rule.

alert tcp any any -> any 25 (msg:"Probable Sobig.F in SMTP";\
sid:9000019; classtype:misc-activity; rev:1;)

As usual, I've broken up the lines, including the content line, so
that this won't falsely trigger my own (or anyone elses?)
filters/rules.  And as always, let me know if you get false positives
or negatives (though I tested this one pretty extensively and feel
pretty confident about it).

Hope it helps.
