[Emerging-Sigs] Binary Packer Signatures

It should be interesting to see how this project works out.  The idea is
good but I think it requires a lot of testing and tuning.  A quick run
through several different pcaps produced lots of FP on sid:20091157
([Ste at lth PE 1.01 -> BGCorp]).

I'm applying your sigs to my test sensors and if there are any issues
then I'll post them here.
I'm working on similar research to identify malicious binaries so these
sigs should definitely help.

Also, it looks like the PEiD database you have is a bit dated.  It would
be nice to have an updated set for these rules.
