This is the oinkmaster url I use to get the ET ruleset

No oinkcode needed....  I can't answer you on the 2.9 compatibility you
might as over on the et list..

        OK, just two questions: 

        1) Are ET ruleset suitable for Snort 2.9 ??? Because I can't see
the download link for this Snort version at

        2) How can I download ET ruleset automatically similar to
oinkmaster usage (with cron)???

        Thanks a lot

                I think you may also find use in the emergingthreats
rules www.emergingthreats.net. Latest rulesets are here:
                I would recommend you upgrade though to at least snort so you can make use of the improvements and http_modifiers.
                In ET a lot of focus on malware command and control,
malware, viruses and current things going on. A worthwhile ruleset to
include to detect stuff within your network. 
                Regards, Kevin
