Yea, I changed mine to the new oink link... I just wanted to make sure
that's what they wanted, since a lot of places put counters on their
download links, categorize their users based on get requests, etc etc...

Is registering for oinkmaster the only way to download the VRT rules
snapshots via backend scripts and/or programs? I have a custom script
that used to download the rules once a day using the following URL, but
the new link for registered users is a .cgi script that verifies if you
are logged in as a registered user, which of course doesn't work for
backend scripts... I'm guess registering as a oink user is the way to
go?

/usr/bin/wget
http://www.snort.org/dl/rules/snortrules-snapshot-2_2.tar.gz
--directory-prefix=/usr/local/snort/rules

All you have to do is change your script like this:
/usr/bin/wget 
http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/oinkmaster.cgi/{oinkcode}/snortrules-snapsh
ot-2.2.tar.gz - 
-directory-prefix=/usr/local/snort/rules

You get the oinkcode from Sourcefire after you've registered.
