Yup - me too.
 
Looks like they have not updated that page for a while..
 
Either way I don't believe a pre 2.8.6.1 rule set is available for
download
 
Again - I think a Snort upgrade to 2.8.6.1 or 2.9 is in order..
 
I'm sure someone from the VRT will be along shortly to explain it better
than I can..

	But this is in my oinkcode section fro Snort site: 
	
	
	Downloading with your Oinkcode
	Important Note

	We are changing the way we publish rules. In June 2010 we
stopped offering rules in the "snortrules-snapshot-CURRENT" format.
Instead, rules are released for specific versions of Snort. You will be
responsible for downloading the correct rules release for your version
of Snort. The new versioning mechanism will require a four digit version
in the file name. For the Subscriber and Registered releases of Snort
2.8.6.0 and Snort 2.8.5.3, the download links would look as follows:

	Subscriber Release

	*	
	
http://www.snort.org/sub-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2860.tar.gz/<oinkcode
>
	*	
	
http://www.snort.org/sub-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz/<oinkcode
>


	

	Registered User Release

	*	
	
http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2860.tar.gz/<oinkcode
>
	*	
	
http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz/<
<http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz/a9e009e9
8b55441d6aeb6983048178df82d721b9> oinkcode>



	What can I do now ????

		I think VRT only supports snort 2.8.6.1 and 2.9 - you
will probably have to upgrade...

			Dear all, I've registered in snort.org to
download the VRT rules....I have Snort 2.8.5.3. 

			I use oinkmaster to download the rules, but what
is the new URL I have to use:

			

			*	
				
				
				This:
	
http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz/<
<http://www.snort.org/reg-rules/snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz/a9e009e9
8b55441d6aeb6983048178df82d721b9> oinkcode>

			
			
			
			
			or this:
	
http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/oinkmaster.cgi/<oinkcode>/snortrules-snapsh
ot-2853.tar.gz
			    
			
			
			Thanks a lot.
