The rules that are currently released for CVE-2013-3906 (sids 28464-28471)
cover all known samples that exploit this vulnerability as well as a
yet-unseen version for which STRIPBYTECOUNT is set to one and the
vulnerable value can be checked easily.  When STRIPBYTECOUNT is greater
than one, the values that are needed to be evaluated for the vulnerable
condition are located at a file offset, which requires additional
processing to compute.  Using snort's shared object rule architecture, we
are able to perform these calculations but since shared object rules are
written in C, there are additional reviews that need to be performed before
release.  The current sids were released to provide good coverage for our
customers immediately while the shared object rule went through the review
process to cover the more general case.  The shared object rule has already
gone through the review process and will be released in an upcoming
