Yes, we've setup a CVSweb server which provides convenient access to the entire Openwall GNU/*/Linux (Owl) CVS tree including source code for Owl and consequently also for most other pieces of Openwall software which are now maintained as a part of Owl but are also made available separately. The CVSweb server allows the more experienced users and other software developers to easily browse through revision history and compare different versions of any source file that we've been working on. It is available at the following location: http://cvsweb.openwall.com Please note that we also continue to maintain an anonymous CVS server supporting the CVS pserver protocol and the CVS server protocol over SSH, and obviously we continue to make our releases and snapshots of Owl available through the FTP mirrors. All of these ways to obtain Owl and thus also our other software are listed on this web page: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/DOWNLOAD.shtml Of course, the source code for scanlogd (just to give an example) is available through the new CVSweb server too: http://cvsweb.openwall.com/scanlogd This redirects you to the CVSweb URL for the scanlogd directory within the Owl tree. But if you simply want to install and use the new release of scanlogd, you should get it at the usual scanlogd homepage URL: http://www.openwall.com/scanlogd/ The changes in scanlogd 2.2.4 are as follows: scanlogd will now chroot to /var/empty to further reduce the impact of potential bugs in scanlogd itself and in the libraries that it uses (although there hasn't been a single bug like this found in scanlogd in the 6 years that it exists). When built with libnids or direct libpcap support, a smart pcap filter expression (originally by Pavel Kankovsky) is now used to hopefully filter out most uninteresting packets while in the kernel. Many minor code cleanups and other enhancements have been made, and RPM spec file and startup script for Red Hat Linux and compatible distributions are now included. (You should be able to build scanlogd RPMs with "rpm -tb scanlogd-2.2.4.tar.gz", provided that you have RPM configured for package builds under your current user account.) -- Alexander Peslyak <solar@...nwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments
