Hi Everyone,

In accordance with the VRT Lifecycle Policy
http://www.snort.org/vrt/eol.html Sourcefire is announcing the End of Life
(EOL) of VRT Rules support for Snort v2.6.x effective November 3, 2008.  EOL
for version 2.6.x was originally announced on March 3, 2008.  At the time
EOL was scheduled for June 3, 2008.   However the VRT has been able to
extend that support through the beginning of November.

The Sourcefire VRT develops rules that take advantage of the latest features
and capabilities in Snort. Although the VRT makes every effort to convert
new and updated rules for use in older versions of Snort, it is not always
possible.  In the case of v2.6, it has become impossible for the VRT to
provide rules updates. Sourcefire strongly encourages all users of Snort
v2.6.x to upgrade the current version of Snort, v2.8.3.1

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
