Hi everyone,

This afternoon's upgrade of Snort.org is complete.  One of the issues
addressed was improving the reliability of the VRT rules download process.
Over the past few months we've seen an increase in reports about failed
downloads.  Today's upgrade should resolve the problem.

This change does affect users who have automated their rules update
process.  The download URL used oinkmaster and pulled_pork conf files has
changed.  The new URL has been updated on the "oinkcodes" page on
Snort.org.  An example of the change is below:

Old download URL


http://dl.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2860.tar.gz?oink_code=
<OINKCODE>

Is now.

       http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2860.tar.gz/
<OINKCODE>

To continue receiving automated rules updates please update your conf. file
with the new URL.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Regards,

Mike
