[Snort-sigs] Sid 1893 FP

The rule is looking for |04 00| offset 5, and depth 15. Thus, it starts 
looking at that offset, then stops looking once it reaches depth 15.
It just so happens that the Request Id: 0x715e0400 is causing this rule 
to alert, even though a valid community string has been specified.
