you may be running foul of the system that stops people from downloading the rules too often.  I had a system that did a HEAD on the file to see if it had changed and then downloaded it if it had.  The download always failed with a 403.

Leave it a while and see if the problem still persists.

Depending on your needs you should also look at the Emerging Threats rule sets -- find with google...
