Snort rule update for July 8, 2021

The newest Cisco Talos rule release for SNORTⓇ is here.

Thursday's ruleset includes new protections against two recently disclosed vulnerabilities in Cisco Business Process Automation. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to elevate their privileges to the level of Administrator on the targeted machine.

We also want to remind everyone that Snort version 2.9.15.0 has officially reached its end of life. Any users on that version need to update as soon as possible.

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