Snort 2.9.8.2 was recently released:

I've packaged Snort 2.9.8.2 and the new package version is as follows:
securityonion-snort - 2.9.8.2-1ubuntu1securityonion1

This resolves the following issue:

Issue 893: Snort 2.9.8.2

Wes Lambert tested this package.  Thanks, Wes!

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
