Security Onion 20120418 now available!


Security Onion 20120418 is now available!  This resolves the following issue:
Issue 254: tcpflow 1.1.1 connection counter breaks Sguil's transcript window

Notes
This update installs the new tcpflow 1.2.6 at /usr/local/bin/tcpflow and a shim at /usr/bin/tcpflow.  The shim is just a bash script that runs the following:
/usr/local/bin/tcpflow -T%A.%a-%B.%b $@

The new version of tcpflow has a new output format so we execute the shim to call tcpflow with the correct -T options to produce the original tcpflow format that Sguil is expecting.

New Users
New users can download and install the 20120125 ISO image using the instructions here. The step marked "Install Security Onion updates" will automatically install this update.

In-place Upgrade
Existing Security Onion users can perform an in-place upgrade using the following command (if you're behind a proxy, remember to set your proxy variables as described in the proxy page of our FAQ):

Security Onion 20120412 now available!


Security Onion 20120412 is now available!  This resolves the following issues:
Issue 226: Rename bro workers
Issue 255: Add /etc/cron.d/nsm-watchdog back to nsmnow-admin-scripts package

Notes
Users with two or more interfaces will notice that the Bro worker configuration in /usr/local/etc/node.cfg has changed.  Instead of worker-1, worker-2, etc., they now follow our normal naming convention (so-eth0, so-eth1, etc.).  For users with only one interface, there will be no changes to the Bro configuration since the standalone Bro configuration doesn't have named workers.

New Users
New users can download and install the 20120125 ISO image using the instructions here. The step marked "Install Security Onion updates" will automatically install this update.

In-place Upgrade
Existing Security Onion users can perform an in-place upgrade using the following command (if you're behind a proxy, remember to set your proxy variables as described in the FAQ):
