Snort 2.9.8.0 now available for Security Onion!

Snort 2.9.8.0 was recently released:
http://blog.snort.org/2015/11/snort-2980-has-been-released.html

I've updated our Snort package:
securityonion-snort - 2.9.8.0-1ubuntu1securityonion1precise1

It has been tested by David Zawdie (thanks!) and resolves the following issue:

Issue 820: Snort 2.9.8.0
https://github.com/Security-Onion-Solutions/security-onion/issues/820

Updating
This new package is 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

This update 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 file(s)
  • update ruleset and restart Snort as follows:
    sudo rule-update
