[Snort-sigs] Sig thought (wpad)

If domain-based windows computers are set to use wpad, they will do
wpad.their.AD.domain as part of their prancing through the dns-daisies,
along with the more expected "wpad.current.domain". Why? Ask Microsoft
(guess: if they do the "their.AD.domain" lookup first, it would
potentially make wpad slightly more secure [because an organization
could gain control of wpad offsite] - so it could be a security measure?)
