FWIW.  These are becoming more and more frequent.  This machine updates
snort weekday mornings at 6 AM MST.  Is there a better time to avoid these
kids of errors?  Just downloaded the latest from emerging threats and it's
still there ;)

alert tcp [] any -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"ET DROP Spamhaus DROP Listed Traffic
Inbound"; flow:established; reference:url,www.spamhaus.org/drop/drop.lasso;
threshold: type limit, track by_src, seconds 3600, count 1;
classtype:misc-attack; sid:2400008; rev:1336;)

Commented out, but eh....still kinda weird.
