Hi Jun. I tried to answer you on the snort-users list but my email was suppressed I think.

Yes, just a few hours ago we got 2.9 and 2.4 finished and published. Go to http://rules.emergingthreats.net/ and pick 
your platform and ruleset. 


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



Just like normal, pick the tarball you need and plug that into oink. It'll do the rest. 


 
I am able to download VRT rules and ET rules for Snort 2.8.6 via Oinkmaster (with cron), please see the following:

sudo vi /usr/local/etc/oinkmaster.conf
 
.....  
url = http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/oinkmaster.cgi/a9393504xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxdb292e/snortrules-snapshot-2860.tar.gz
url = http://rules.emergingthreats.net/open/snort-2.8.6/emerging.rules.tar.gz
 
.....

Also I noticed lots of duplicated SIDs during the update process, don't know why/how to fix. 
 



I'm guessing you're running vrt and the open ruleset, but those both have the old GPL sigs in there, sids 3464 and 
lower. If you want to use VRT and ET you need to use the ET open-nogpl sigs. Those do not include the gpl snort sigs or 
the old community sigs. 


That do it for you?


Matt


 
Any information and help would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks.

John

This is the oinkmaster url I use to get the ET ruleset
 
url=http://rules.emergingthreats.net/open/snort-2.8.6/emerging.rules.tar.gz

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 
http://rules.emergingthreats.net/


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:

http://rules.emergingthreats.net/open-nogpl/snort-2.8.4/emerging.rules.tar.gz

I would recommend you upgrade though to at least snort 2.8.6.1 so you can make use of the improvements and 
http_modifiers.

http://rules.emergingthreats.net/open/snort-2.8.6/emerging.rules.tar.gz

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

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/<oinkcode>


or this:http://www.snort.org/pub-bin/oinkmaster.cgi/<oinkcode>/snortrules-snapshot-2853.tar.gz
