I've packaged it and the following packages are now available:
securityonion-snort 2.9.8.3-1ubuntu1securityonion1
securityonion-daq 2.0.6-0ubuntu0securityonion5

These new packages should resolve the following issue:

Issue 946: Snort 2.9.8.3
https://github.com/Security-Onion-Solutions/security-onion/issues/946

These packages have been tested by Wes Lambert.  Thanks, Wes!

Updating
These 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

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
