Suricata 1.4.6 package now available

Suricata 1.4.6 was recently released:
http://www.openinfosecfoundation.org/index.php/component/content/article/1-latest-news/183--suricata-146-released

I've packaged Suricata 1.4.6 and the new package has been tested by David Zawdie and JP Bourget.

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

The Suricata update will do the following:

  • back up each of your existing suricata.yaml file(s) to suricata.yaml.bak
  • update Suricata to 1.4.6

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

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