Description : tool for updating Suricata rules
suricata-update is a tool to easily and reliably fetch and update rule
sets for the Suricata IDS/IPS system. It queries external upstream rule
sources such as Emerging Threat/Proofpoint's rule sets and others, taking
into account user accounts and preferences, and merges all rules into one
file to be loaded into Suricata.
This is a newly developed software tool and the one currently recommended
by Suricata's upstream for rule maintenance.
