You should use pulledpork. (Oinkmaster is dead).

pulledpork has several features included in it that we design the ruleset for (like flowbit resolution depending upon policy configuration).  So that’s the official recommendation.

I am new to using Snort and was curious about updates.  Do I have to have Pulled Pork or Oinkmaster to update my rules?  Also, Are rules the only maintenance task I should perform to keep up to date?   Should I be able to untar/gz the snortrules-snapshot-*.tar.gz and put it in the proper directory or is there more to it and if so why?
Thanks for your time and consideration!
