You can use Oinkmaster to update your Snort rules and to keep your rule
modifications intact.
That is how I and many other do this.

Hi Frank,

  Yes, correct but I need to modify snort rules by hand if i would to
block some connections with snortsam (and if I launch process to update
snort rules, they are overwritted and I lose my changes). I need to
block connections immediately using snort rules and custom rules.
