A new version of popular open source IDS has been released. There are some cool new features of which I like the ability to specify multiple configurations bound by different VLANs or IP addresses.

More information is available at VRT's blog and you can download it from

The VRT subscriber rule release was a day before the release of 2.8.5. So if you check the snort.conf provided in the ruleset, you will find that it does not match the snort.conf that comes with 2.8.5.
Another release came out today that covers 2.8.5
