This update resolves the following issue:

Upgrading
The new packages are now available in our stable repo.  Please see our Upgrade page for full upgrade instructions:
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/wiki/Upgrade

After installing the new packages, you'll need to restart Bro:
sudo broctl restart

Screenshots
Under certain conditions, the old Bro scripts would fail to determine the hostname and interface...

...resulting in Bro's conn.log containing an invalid "sensorname" field (should be hostname-interface)

Installing new securityonion-bro-scripts package

Restarting Bro

Bro now properly determines hostname and interface resulting in...
...conn.log having the correct sensorname (hostname-interface)
