I just started a project to download the latest snort rules, then modify them for our different systems with the custom variables, etc. To do all the stuff I take care of manually, which takes awhile, with a nice script.

But then I found there is already something out there called oinkmaster. I haven't installed it yet, but I was wondering if anybody here uses it or has used it in the past.

Is it worth trying or should I just write my own app?
