Is it worth the upgrade from 2.8.5.2 to 2.8.5.3? Only thing I see in the
README on snort.org is: 

 

"2010-02-12 - Snort 2.8.5.3

[*] Improvements

   * General code improvements and clean up in the rpc

     preprocessor related to the processing of Sun rpc data.

 

   * Fixed an issue where, under particular conditions, a reload

     of the Snort configuration file without a restart would

     cause Snort to stop responding."

 

 

Doesn't seem like it's worth it if you aren't using the RPC or reloading
of the config file. 

 

Thanks,

Andy Berryman
