Snort 4.0_12 Release Notes (for pfSense-2.5-DEVEL only)

  • Snort v4.0_12

    This updates the Snort GUI package for pfSense-2.5-DEVEL to support the latest Snort binary. Two new features and one bug fix are included in this release.

    New Features:

    1. Filter Panel parameters, when filtering is enabled on the ALERTS tab, are now persistent across page submits so that previously defined filtering parameters do not reset when submitting a revised filter.

    2. A new "Exact Match" option was also added to the Filter Panel. When checked, this causes matches only when each provided filter parameter matches exactly. When unchecked, filter values will match on partial strings.

    Bug Fixes:

    1. When SID MGMT changes rules to DROP, it is not skipping rules containing flowbits:noalert tags. This results in dropped traffic without any logged alert about the drop action.
