Snort rule update for April 15, 2021

Cisco Talos released the newest rule update for SNORTⓇ this morning.

Thursday's rule release includes several new rules to protect against the Raindrop malware. This threat was recently discovered being deployed by actors exploiting the well-known vulnerabilities in SolarWinds. This supply chain attack targeted many high-profile organizations and government agencies.

Here's a breakdown of today's rule release:
