Security Onion 12.04.5 ISO image now available

We have a new Security Onion 12.04.5 ISO image now available that contains all the latest Ubuntu and Security Onion updates as of September 8, 2014!

It should also resolve the following issues:

Issue 536: ISO: deleting desktop icons for live user sometimes doesn't work properly

Issue 584: ISO: 14.04 HWE stack (Linux kernel 3.13)
https://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=584

In short, it's the best release ever!

This new ISO image has been tested by the following (thanks!):

Existing Deployments
If you have existing installations based on a previous 12.04 ISO image, there is no need to download the new 12.04.5 ISO image.  You can simply continue using our standard update process to install updated packages as they are made available:
