Yup - me too.
Looks like they have not updated that page for a while..
Either way I don't believe a pre rule set is available for
Again - I think a Snort upgrade to 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 and Snort, the download links would look as follows:

        Subscriber Release




        Registered User Release

        What can I do now ????

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