Not if he wants to use stable. snort in unstable depends on libc6 (>= 2.3.2-1), so upgrading to snort in unstable means upgrading libc6 to unstable. Really, newbies do run servers (I do), and they know that server should be on stable (I do), but it is not easy to know what you should do to very outdated packages. And I mean, the core question is: What is the advantage of not updating packages, when the package is in question is so old you shouldn't use it?

Do 'apt-get source <package>' (which always gets you the latest source).
Then 'cd <package>-<version> && dpkg-buildpackage'
