[Snort-sigs] CVE vs VRT Rules

We place the CVE for each rule it's applicable to in the rule itself.  Searching the Rules section of the Sourcefire GUI or a simple grep through the Open ruleset will tell you which rules for which CVEs there are.

If there are CVEs which we do not have coverage for, we can certainly try and develop coverage for it.  There are many factors to rule creation, but more than likely we'll be able to create coverage for it.
