Unfortunately the glowing news is premature.  Yes, a new 
snortrules-snapshot-2_1.tar.gz was released for everybody using a 
production 2.1.x snort; and it does contain some updates and a 
sid-msg.map with 2378 unique SIDs.  However, the *.rules files in the 
tarball only contain 2334 unique rules.  In particular, all the new 
rules that detect Sasser (e.g. 2514) are missing!

Whoever it is who maintains the downloadable rules should take a look 
pronto.  Those of us *not* using the CVS version of snort are out in the
