    Question Intrusion Prevention (Suricata) not updating signatures?

    Hello @all,

    Are you having problems with Suricata not updating signatures? Over here the last update was 2020-04-27.

    Is there a way to force a signature update via command line? What about update logs? Where can I see those? Finally, does anyone knows Untangle's policy regarding signatures update? If weekly, monthly or just ocassionaly?

    Thank you.

    Signatures are checked everyday. It is up to upstream sources if new rules are added or updates.

    Does anyone know which version of suricata engine is running on Untangle?
    If it version 2 then they need to upgrade it. At proofpoint .com they announced version 5 and among other features, they say :

    Suricata 2 will be end-of-life at the end of Q1 2020

    No new rules will be created for Suricata 2 after that date

    You need to upgrade your Suricata engine by the end of Q1 2020 to Suricata 4 or 5 to continue getting rule updates.
    Last update for suricata 2 was on 15/04/2020

    I can Confirm that My system has received no updates since the 15/04/2020 date. Well 17/04/2020 but the point is still the same there has been updates to rules since then just none retrieved by Untangle. May be something to the version conversation

    https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/suricata

    If you're on 15.0, you'll be in the oldstable branch, which has Suricata 3.2.1-1+deb9u1
    If you're on 15.1, you'll be in the stable branch, which has Suricata 4.1.2-2

    Untangle gets updated releases when Debian releases them, you'll never have the most recent with any Debian based platform.

    It looks like 5.0.3 is in testing, so we might see that sooner rather than later. This is the current release according to https://suricata-ids.org/download/
