Hi there,

For those who may be interested, SecurityFocus has released the ARIS
sensor RPM which includes Snort 1.8.2, the default ruleset, and the newly
released ARIS extractor 1.6.  It is built on RedHat Linux 7.1 but should
install properly on most other Linux distributions.  It is available at:

ARIS sensor 1.6 Beta

To install this RPM, run :

# rpm --install aris-sensor-1.6-beta.i386.rpm

This will install the included programs in /usr/local/aris-sensor. Next,
run the "install.pl" script within the aris-sensor directory to configure
ARIS extractor to automatically upload your data.

If you installed the previous version of the RPM, you must uninstall it,
by running the following commands:

# /etc/rc.d/init.d/snort stop
# rpm --erase aris-sensor-1.0-beta

The standalone version of ARIS extractor is also available at the URL

Users of ARIS extractor 1.6 can now enable the automatic generation of
daily summary reports. These reports, sent by email, give you an overview
of the activity seen by your IDS over the previous 24 hour period. For an
example of this report, see the following:

Thanks for your time.
