Snort v4.0_6 Package Update Release Notes (pfSense-2.5 DEVEL)

  • pfSense-pkg-snort-4.0_6
    This update corrects a cosmetic issue with the display of the last rules update execution time and status information. Formerly this info was stored in the config.xml file, but that resulted in unnecessary backups of config.xml with each rules update job run. A previous package update removed the call to write_config() that was generating the unnecessary backup, but that prevented the recording of rules update time and status. The rules update execution time and status are now recorded locally in a small file on the firewall.

    New Features:

    Bug Fixes:

    1. Rules update task info (execution time and status) is displaying as either "unknown" or the last package installation date and time.
