 snort      - Flexible Network Intrusion Detection System
Closes: 205683 219696 265735 265878 290104 291616 306269 310096 313906 318695 321738 325223 326538 327791 328134 328134 330834
 snort (2.3.3-2) unstable; urgency=high
   * Backport the following changes introduced in 2.4.1. Upstream changelog:
       * src/log.c:
         Fix problem in sniffer mode when incomplete TCP option data is received.
         Thanks A Hernandez for the find.
     (Closes: #328134)
     Note: This is a "security" bug but no CVE is assigned, it is actually
     something that can happen only if a Snort user willingly shoots himself
     on the foot (uses ASCII logging mode) or if he uses the fast output
     mode with some non-default options.
     For a detailed view see:
     Martin Roesch's mail "Snort DoS Fallacies" to snort-users and bugtraq:
     and also
     To summarise: The only recommended alert methods in a production sensor
     are unified, syslog or database. And unified is The Right Way to run
     a sensor (others have important performance issues under high load )
     NOTE to Debian Security teams: I don't believe this bug merits a DSA 
     (or a DTSA for that matter)
     (Closes: #328134)
   * Backport the following changes introduced in 2.4.2. Upstream changelog:
       * src/output-plugins/spo_log_database.c:
       * schemas/create_mysql:
         Fixes to address schema being a keyword in MySQL 5.0.  Thanks Wes Young,
         Adolfo Gomez, and Aleem Mawji for the updates.
     (Closes: #327791)
   * Added Swedish translation provided by Daniel Nylander (Closes: #330834)
 snort (2.3.3-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release.
   * Use upstream's FAQ in PDF format instead of debian/my/FAQ.txt, also
     have the FAQ available only in the snort-doc package (after fixing 
     the Makefile so that the faq.tex file does not get removed on distclean)
   * Fix typo in snort.8 manpage (Closes: #326538)
   * Fixed address of the FSF in debian/copyright
   * Updated debconf translations:
     - Vietnamese provided by Clytie Siddall
 snort (2.3.2-8) unstable; urgency=low
   * _Really_ use debhelper compat version 4 now
   * Remove debian/*conffiles since debhelper now marks them as config files
 snort (2.3.2-7) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix lintian warnings
   * Fix error in database config scripts (when not upgrading, the
     wait_for_db_config key does not exist) (Closes: #325223)
   * Updated debconf translations:
      - French provided by Christian Perrier
 snort (2.3.2-6) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add Dependency on "debconf | debconf-2.0" as requested by Joey Hess
   * Use Debhelper compatibility version 4
   * New mechanism for database packages:
     - Introduce a mechanism to create /etc/snort/db-pending-config on
       initial installation of the database packages.
     - Have the init.d script abort the start attempt if the 
       /etc/snort/db-pending-config file exists.
     - Describe how to setup the database support in README-database.Debian
       and install this document in the database packages.
       (Closes: #205683, #219696, #265735, #265878, #290104, #291616)
   * po-debconf changes:
     (still waiting a little bit before switching to dbconfig-common)
     - Sinchronise all the debconf templates of the different snort 
     - Change the wait_for_db_config message, now called 'needs_db_config'
       and provides slightly different information.
     - Fixed typos in German debconf translation courtesy of Jens Seidel
       (Closes: #313906)
     - Added Japanese translation contributed by Hideki Yamane
       (Closes: #310096)
     - Added Vietnamese translation contributed by Clytie Siddall 
       (Closes: #318695)
     - Added Czech translation contributed by Jan Outrata (Closes: #321738)
     - Updated the Spanish translation.
     - Improve the debconf dialog with suggestions from Justin B Rye
       (Closes: #306269)
     - Fix the templates so that all the files use the same strings, that
       should reduce the workload of translating almost identical lines.
       (but also fuzzies more of the translations above)
