[Snort-sigs] Rule #2000900

248 was removed. I forget why, was a bad rule.

The sid's aren't contiguous for a couple reasons:

Some rules are in stable-side
some have been removed
some days the admins here just have trouble counting  :)

We use a script to generate the sid-msg.map from the stable and 
stable/malware rules. But now that you mention it we should also pull 
from stable-side. I'll make that adjustment and update. That will fix 
most of the missing rules.

Thanks for pointing it out.
