Bill,  Thankyou for the quick response. 

While appending suricata-4.0 seems to work, on closer inspection of the ET Mailing list entry I think it would be better to base the Rules URL on the full Suricata version number.  They give the following examples:

Code: [Select]
Suricata 4.0: https://rules.emergingthreatspro.com/$oinkcode/suricata-4.0.0/
Suricata 3.2.3: https://rules.emergingthreatspro.com/$oinkcode/suricata-3.2.3/
Suricata 2.0.11: https://rules.emergingthreatspro.com/$oinkcode/suricata-2.0.11/

Reference: https://lists.emergingthreats.net/pipermail/emerging-sigs/2017-October/028424.html

Perhaps a longer term fix is to append the current package version number to the URL?

Greg

Thank you for the update and the link to the mailing list.  I will look into this.  For now, the issue should be fixed with the new package update released today.
