I've packaged it and the following package is now available:
securityonion-snort - 2.9.9.0-1ubuntu1securityonion1

This new package should resolve the following issue:

Issue 1031: Snort 2.9.9.0
https://github.com/Security-Onion-Solutions/security-onion/issues/1031

This package has been tested by Wes Lambert.  Thanks, Wes!

Updating
This 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
