A few Shared Object platforms are being deprecated

In the near future the following Shared Object platform build environments will be deprecated as per our EOL policy:


OpenBSD 4.8
OpenSUSE 11.3

If you are using any of the above, please consider upgrading, as you will no longer be able to use precompiled Shared Object rules on your platform.  Text rules (the vast majority of the ruleset) are unaffected by this.

Inexpensive Cellular IDS allows for Inspection for Cell Traffic, using Snort

From the article:

"At DEF CON last weekend, a team of researchers demonstrated an inexpensive cellular intrusion detection system (CIDS) built with a commercial femtocell, commodity hardware, and the open source Snort IDS. The researchers say the system, the first publicly available for cellular traffic inspection, can scale for enterprise deployments with better hardware and is a game-changer for securing personal devices at work."
