That's not a rule at all, it's an alert generated by a preprocessor.
Since it's not a rule, you'd need to modify the source code for
http_inspect and recompile snort to do any kind of edit.
However, you can change the parameters you pass to http_inspect in your
snort.conf to disable this detection. Just add "double_decode no" to your
profile in snort.conf.
My personaly approach is to not have any "default" http_inspect. I only run
http_inspect against my specific webservers.
preprocessor http_inspect_server: server 18.104.22.168 \
profile all ports <censored rest of config>
See the README.http_inspect that comes with the snort tarball for a bit
more detail on what kinds of things you can tell http_inspect to do or not do.
