New securityonion-pfring-module package now available

We recently released PF_RING 5.5.3 packages:

Shortly after releasing the packages, we determined that there was a bug in the kernel module.  The PF_RING team patched the kernel module and I've created a new securityonion-pfring-module package which is now available in our stable repo.

To ensure that the PF_RING kernel module is installed before any Ubuntu kernel updates, you may want to install as follows:
sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get install securityonion-pfring-module ; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
For more information, please see our Upgrade page:

The securityonion-pfring-module package will do the following:

  • stop all NSM sensor processes
  • terminate any remaining processes using PF_RING
  • remove the existing PF_RING module
  • build the new PF_RING module and insert it
  • start all NSM sensor processes

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