With the release of Snort 184.108.40.206 the clock started ticking for the
support of Snort 220.127.116.11 rules. On October 22nd 2010, 90 days after the
18.104.22.168 release date, support for the 22.214.171.124 rule set will cease. For
registered users there will be an extra 30 days after this date due to
the 30 day delay you currently experience with rule releases.
Upgrading your security software is just good practice and an essential
part of your security posture, you should plan on upgrading your 2.8.5
installations to 2.8.6.x ASAP.
Note that although 126.96.36.199 rules will work with a 2.8.6.x version of
Snort, the same cannot be said for 2.8.6.x rules in a 2.8.5.x
environment. Remember, on October 22nd the only rules available will be
for Snort 2.8.6.x.
