in the rules i looked at ( IIRC) this rule is disabled by default but you 
can read the rule to see what it is looking at...

Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 emulation via meta tag"; 
flow:to_client,established; file_data; content:"<meta "; 
content:"content=|22|IE=EmulateIE7|22|"; within:200; metadata:service ftp-data, 
service http, service imap, service pop3; classtype:attempted-user; sid:26848; 

the first thing is that it is looking for the string "<meta " and then another 
string of "content=|22|IE=EmulateIE7|22|"... the "|22|" parts are the double 
quote character (")... the rule is looking for these in ftp, http, imap and pop3 

the above rule may be triggered as part of MAGNITUDE EK infestation traffic as 
noted at this URL... http://malware-traffic-analysis.net/2014/09/10/index.html

the above link was the 4th one in this google search...
