Hello,

As seen in this changelog
(http://www.snort.org/vrt/docs/ruleset_changelogs/changes-2006-08-22.html),
what do the words "enabled" or "disabled" mean?

7567 <-> Disabled <-> SPYWARE-PUT Trackware funwebproducts
mywebsearchtoolbar-funtools runtime detection (spyware-put.rules)

Rule 7567 is still in the most recent rule packs so it obviously
doesn't mean that the rule itself is being removed or "disabled" in
the sense that it is no longer in effect.

If anyone could clarify I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Steve Mullins
