Suricata 1.4.2 package now available

Suricata 1.4.2 was recently released:

I've packaged Suricata 1.4.2 and it has been tested by the following (thanks!):
David Zawdie

Upgrade Process

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 install securityonion-suricata
The Suricata update will do the following:

  • back up each of your existing suricata.yaml file(s) to suricata.yaml.bak
  • update Suricata to 1.4.2

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 install securityonion-suricata

suricata -V

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