Snort rule update for Feb. 2, 2021

Cisco Talos released the newest rule set for SNORTⓇ Tuesday morning.

There are multiple rules in this release that protect against, Generickdz which is often the generic name given to Windows trojans. Our two new rules will prevent the malware from downloading its final payload.

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