Subject: [Snort-sigs] Incorrect md5 for latest rules


Hi all,


Regarding most recent update (2018-02-21), contents of md5 for the latest snort rules update at snort dot org for us is just:

["File not found by name 'snortrules-snapshot-29111.tar.gz'"]


We’re able to download the actual rules without issues however since md5 checksum is bad deployment to firewalls fails.


Is anyone else having this issue with latest md5?
