Go to http://www.snort.org/.

Look in the lower left corner for a box labeled "rules documentation".. 
it's a search on a database of rule documentation.

Or you can go straight to:

and enter more advanced queries so you don't get such blanket results. (the 
search from the main page will match the search string anywhere, but the 
other page you can specify to explicitly search by SID, CVE or description.
