[Snort-sigs] False positives on 1806.7 (WEB-IIS .htr chunked Transfer-Encoding)

Rule:  WEB-IIS .htr chunked Transfer-Encoding

Sid: 1806

False Positives:
Current version of the rule matches even if string "chunked" 
precedes the Transfer-Encoding header, such as being part of
the URL.

I am proposing to add "distance":

(msg:"WEB-IIS .htr chunked Transfer-Encoding"; 
flow:to_server,established; uricontent:".htr"; nocase; 
content:"Transfer-Encoding|3A|"; nocase; 
content:"chunked"; nocase; distance:0;
reference:bugtraq,4855; reference:bugtraq,5003; 
classtype:web-application-attack; sid:1806; rev:8;)

Alternatively this could be resolved by converting to PCRE.
