Well, it seems that Sourcefire has done it again. Can you tell us WHY you
(Sourcefire) have updated Snort for UNIX only? Are the powers to be sending
a message to the Windows users telling them that there environment is less
important? Apparently Marty needs to step in and see to it that the Windows
Pre-Compiled binaries are made available at the same time as the UNIX

This is a VERY old subject and I can remember it from 5 years ago. Is it not
time that Sourcefire puts some validity to the use of Snort in the Windows
environment. Sourcefire needs to do this by releasing timely updates, not
only for UNIX, but for Windows, and at the same time.

Kindest regards,

Hey Everyone,

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
       "-K ascii"
       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.
     * ...

Snort 2.4.1 can be found at 
http://www.snort.org/dl/current/snort-2.4.1.tar.gz. Please remember that 
rules are no longer included with releases but can be downloaded at
