Change Log

Update Snort package version in the pkg_config.8.xml and pkg_config.8.xml.amd64 master package configuration files to version 2.5.5. Forgot to do this with the last push of new Snort package.

Fix longstanding bug in the enable/disable SID code that allows users to override default rules states by SID. The code was not actually changing the marked SIDs because an improperly constructed array was causing a match attempt to fail. This bug was reported again on the forums today, so I investigated. I was previously not aware it was not working properly. This has been broken since probably at least package version 2.5.3.

Fix a bug in the code for forced enabling or disabling of specific rules by SID that has existed from version 2.5.3. The code reading and parsing the SID values persisted in the configuration file was constructing an inappropriate array for the type of "in_arrary()" search being performed by the "snort_modify_sids()" function.
