I am a new one and I am a bit confused about the rules files stored in
/rules folder. I had downloaded snortrules-snapshot-2953.tar.gz and I used
tar -zvxf snortrules-snapshot-2953.tar.gz command to unzip the archiv. When
I look into the /rules folder where are all these snort rules files and try
to open some it is just empty. For example I open telnet.rules file and all
content is :
# Copyright 2001-2013 Sourcefire, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Can anybody explain me why?
