Suricata 1.4.1 package now available


Suricata 1.4.1 was recently released:
http://suricata-ids.org/2013/03/08/suricata-1-4-1-released/

I've packaged Suricata 1.4.1 and it has been tested by the following (thanks!):

David Zawdie

The new package is now available in our stable repo. You can initiate the upgrade process using the graphical Update Manager or using the following one-liner:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Install Process

The Suricata update will do the following:

  • install some new dependencies (libluajit and libjansson)
  • back up each of your existing suricata.yaml file(s) to suricata.yaml.bak
  • update Suricata to 1.4.1

If you're running Suricata in production, then you'll need to do the following:

  • apply your local customizations to the new suricata.yaml
  • restart Suricata as follows:
sudo nsm_sensor_ps-restart --only-snort-alert

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

suricata -V

Update suricata.yaml file(s) and then run "sudo nsm_sensor_ps-restart --only-snort-alert"
