Snort 188.8.131.52 and daq 0.3 released – Slackware packages available
The beginning of this month a new version of Snort was released – 184.108.40.206. The companion Data Acquisition library (daq) was also upgraded to version 0.3.
I updated my SlackBuilds and installed the new versions on my server. I waited a bit before releasing the packages as there had been some reports on a new “Unknown record type” in Barnyard2, this time with record type 110. Read my previous posts here and here to learn more details about this problem.
For the “110″ record type the workaround is disabling the “inspect_gzip” option in the snort.conf flie, while the authors of Barnyard2 work on a new release.
For daq-0.3 and snort-220.127.116.11 I submitted the new SlackBuilds and pre-built packages for Slackware, Slackware64 and ARMedslack are available on my site.
