> Subject: [Snort-users] Snort 2.9.4 Now Available
> Snort 2.9.4 is now available on snort.org, at
> http://www.snort.org/snort-downloads/ in the Latest Release section.
> Please note:
> 188.8.131.52 & later packages are signed with a new PGP key
> (that key is signed with the previous key).
> Snort 2.9.4 includes changes for the following:
> [*] New additions
> * Consolidation of IPv6 -- now only a single build supports both
> IPv4 & IPv6, and removal of the IPv4 "only" code paths.
> * File API and improvements to file processing for HTTP downloads
> and email attachments via SMTP, POP, and IMAP to facilitate
> broader file support
> * Use of address space ID for tracking Frag & Stream connections
> when it is available with the DAQ
> * Logging of packet data that triggers PPM for post-analysis via
> Snort event
> * Decoding of IPv6 with PPPoE
> * Added an API call to add a service to a host in the attribute
> Remove the unused live attribute update code.
> [*] Improvements
> * Update to Stream5 PAF for handling gaps in the sequence numbers of
> packets being reassembled.
> * Selection of the Stream TCP policy based on the server rather than
> the destination of first packet seen by Snort
> * Allow disabling of global thresholds via a count of -1
> * Prevent blocking duplicate SYNs when using inline normalization
> * Add SSLv3 backwards compatibility support for SSLv2 ClientHello
> * Allow active responses to packets without data (eg, a TCP SYN)
> * Changed logic of option evaluations for shared library rules that
> use a custom evaluation function to match that of the builtin
> when the NOT_FLAG is used. The 'NOT' matching now happens within
> each of the individual rule option evaluation functions.
> * Updated SMTP preprocessor to better handle commands that have
> corresponding data on a subsequent line to reduce false positives.
> 3 commands fall into this category - X-EXPS, XEXCH50, and BDAT.
> * Improve support for encapsulated & tunneling protocols to block or
> fastpath a connection within the tunnel rather applying that to
> the whole tunnel.
> Please see the Release Notes and ChangeLog for more details.
