Heya John!

My guess would be that the web site is not able to distinguish between
the GPL rules and the VRT rules. Thus the web site does not display the
actual rules anymore. As you recall, you have to sign up for the VRT

That said, "grep 'sid:1234567' *.rules" works just as well. Just take a
look at the Snort rule themselves.
