Ah... :(
There was a bug in the script... We did correct the script already, but
apparently, we did not put the new script online. I will do this as soon
as I finished typing this mail :)

The script that will be available within a few minutes (same location:
http://www.xssass.be/updateSnort) works fine for snort 2.0.0. We use it with
that version and it updates perfectly without any troubles. We just can't
assure you that it will work with snort 1.9.x, but because of security reasons,
we would advise everybody to switch to snort 2.0.0 anyway.

My friend and I wrote the script...
It's a perlscript, and it works fine... It downloads the new rules from the
snort website, as well as the md5 checksum... If the checksum matches, it will
download and install the new rules. Then alter the snort.conf file to include
the new rules, and restart snort.

Kind regards,
