Snort version has been released

We released the latest version of Snort 2.9, SNORTⓇ version, this afternoon. 

This version is a very small update that fixes a possible memory corruption issue in the SMB preprocessor. If you haven't already, we also encourage users to upgrade to Snort 3, which includes a new rule parser and rule syntax, support for multiple packet-processing threads, and much more.

Here's a rundown of what's new in

  • Fixed possible memory corruption in SMB preprocessor.
As always, this maintenance release of Snort is available on our Snort downloads page.  For any questions, please feel free to visit our Snort-Users mailing list.
