Snort rule update for April 29, 2021

Cisco Talos just released the latest SNORTⓇ rule update.

Thursday's release includes protection against the exploitation of a recently disclosed vulnerability in Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software and Firepower Threat Defense Software. An adversary could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial-of-service condition on a client's VPN connection if they're using an affected version of the Cisco Secure Client. 

Here's a breakdown of this rule release:
