Thanks for the reminder, Joel. Those who can't upgrade to a newer or
newest version of Snort, or wish to use a different ruleset alongside,
or instead of the VRT set, should definitely check out Emerging
Threats Pro -- http://www.emergingthreatspro.com/. The Emerging
Threats Open rules are free and updated almost daily to respond to the
latest threats and I have found them to be quite effective, timely,
and properly QAed. There are also some you can pay for as well
(cheaper than VRT I think); see
http://www.emergingthreatspro.com/products/ for details.
Emerging Threats Open/Pro supports rules for Snort 2.4.0 up to the
current version, as well as rules optimised for Suricata
Personally, I like https://rules.emergingthreatspro.com/open-nogpl/.
That said, if you are still running an older version of Snort, I
highly encourage you to update since there are a lot of new and
extremely helpful features in newer versions that allow for more
accurate and efficient rules.
