No.  Snort is a Network Intrusion Detection System.  Trying to use Snort to
protect against the slapper worm would be like using a coathanger to open a
car door--It _could_ work, if you are lucky.  Having the key to the door is
the best thing, and in this case that means patch your servers.

Cheers!
