This message is to announce the availability of an update for the 
Sourcefire community rule set, which can be downloaded free of cost or 
registration from http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/downloads.cgi.

New rules in this release are identified as SIDs 100000219-100000221. 
These rules detect e-mail attachments of type ms-tnef, which may contain 
malicious anti-Exchange or anti-Outlook code, as well as access to 
vulnerable parameters PHP-Nuke and AppServ, which may allow arbitrary 
command execution and arbitrary file access, respectively.

Sourcefire would like to thank rmkml for submitting these rules. As a 
reminder, anyone who wishes to submit rules may do so at 

A list of new rules and their SIDs follows.
