Hi there,

Just registered at your site.

I as well as thousands of othere would like to see all cureent AV
signatures so 
as we can quickly add them to our sensors from a single location.

I would be in a position to help with this, I also think it would be a
good idea to allow people to download the entire ruleset each day at say
GMT, where you are guranteed to get the latest version of that
particular days 

I would speak with Jeff Dell (www.activeworx.com) who is the author of
Poilicy manager, used by many Snorters, and ask him to add a download
from www.snort.gitflorida.com.

Let me know what you think.
