Snort 2.9.7.3 now available!

Snort 2.9.7.3 was recently released:
http://blog.snort.org/2015/05/snort-2973-is-now-available.html

I've updated our Snort packages:
securityonion-snort - 2.9.7.3-0ubuntu0securityonion3
securityonion-daq - 2.0.5-0ubuntu0securityonion1

These new packages resolve the following issues:

Issue 730: Snort 2.9.7.3
https://github.com/Security-Onion-Solutions/security-onion/issues/730

Issue 731: Snort DAQ 2.0.5
https://github.com/Security-Onion-Solutions/security-onion/issues/731

These new packages have been tested by Jeff Tehovnik (thanks!).

Updating
These new packages are now available in our stable repo.  Please see the following page for full update instructions:
https://github.com/Security-Onion-Solutions/security-onion/wiki/Upgrade

These updates will back up each of your existing snort.conf files to snort.conf.bak and migrate your HOME_NET and EXTERNAL_NET variables.  You'll then need to do the following:

  • re-apply any other local customizations to your snort.conf files
  • update ruleset and restart Snort as follows:
  • sudo rule-update
