Security Onion 20120427 now available!

Security Onion 20120427 is now available!  This resolves the following issues:
Issue 245: Snort
Issue 259: Update Security Onion logo

Please note that if you are using the VRT ruleset and are a free "Registered User" (instead of a paid "Subscriber"), then you may need to wait until the 30-day wait period has elapsed to get the new rules.

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):
sudo -i "curl -L > ~/ && bash ~/"
Please note that the new snort.conf will overwrite your existing snort.conf.  Your existing snort.conf will be backed up to /nsm/backup/20120427/NAME_OF_SENSOR/.  Please copy any customizations (HOME_NET, etc.) from the backup copy to the production copy /etc/nsm/NAME_OF_SENSOR/snort.conf.
