I see.  The personal price is nice, however I’m sure I would have to go business subscription.  I guess I’ll stop 
posting false positives for snort rules to the sig group since maybe it’s already fixed.  From the site:


Sourcefire Vulnerability Research Team™ (VRT) Rules are the official rules of snort.org. Each rule is developed and 
tested using the same rigorous standards the VRT uses for Sourcefire customers.




Registered users of Snort.org are able to download and use VRT rules free of charge 30 days after their initial release 


I think this changes my thoughts on what the free registered feed is…from “30 days old” to “30 days old and possibly 


Thanks for the clarification.

When new rules, or updated rules are released, they are released into the subscriber package for 30 days, which, like I 
said is available for a personal subscription for 29$ a year. After the 30-days from release they are rolled over to 
the free registered feed.

                So let me understand this.  My understanding of the Subscription Rules were that these were the latest 
and greatest bleeding edge rules…especially for 0-day items, new malware, trojans, etc.  The Subscription Rules also 
contained “fixed” rules?

                However, you aren't receiving the rule yet because it has not come out of the 30 day window for 
registered users.
