Security Onion 12.04.3 ISO image now available

We have a new Security Onion 12.04.3 ISO image now available that contains all the latest Ubuntu and Security Onion updates as of September 4, 2013!

Thanks to the following for testing the new ISO image!

For a list of all changes made since our original 12.04 ISO image was released, please see:

New Users
I've updated the Installation guide to reflect the download locations for the new 12.04.3 ISO image:

As always, please remember to verify the checksum of the downloaded ISO image using the instructions in the Installation guide.

Known Issues
The ISO image included an older version of python-zmq introduced by the recent OnionSalt package:

This can result in the following symptoms:

  • When running Setup under certain conditions, salt-master will crash resulting in a bug report error in the status bar.  You can simply ignore this bug report.
  • salt-minions failing to reconnect to salt-master properly.

An updated version of python-zmq is available in our Stable repo that resolves these issues, so you'll want to install all available updates right after installing the ISO.

Existing Deployments
If you have existing installations based on our original 12.04 ISO image, there is no need to download the new 12.04.3 ISO image.  You can simply continue using our standard update process to install updated packages as they are made available:

If you have any questions or problems, please use our mailing list:

We especially need help in answering support questions on the mailing list and IRC channel.  Thanks!
