Snort 2.4.1 has been released and addresses a bug in TCP SACK processing
that could result in a DoS for some text based logging methods. In
addition, this release includes changes and fixes for several issues
reported by the community, such as:
* Pcap logging is now the default for Snort at startup, use
to revert to old behavior.
* Change ip_proto to ip for portscan configuration. Thanks David
for pointing this out.
* Added support for new OpenBSD pflog format. Older pflog format,
OpenBSD 3.3 and earlier is still supported. Thanks Breno Leitao
and Christian Reis for the patch.
