Release Notes

4.2.3 - RN1 Updates to Address Security Advisory

Included in this release are improvements to the input validation routines used to cleanse particular parameters submitted by the event search form.  This addresses all issues found in the security advisory found <a target="_blank" href="http://forums.alienvault.com/discussion/1236/security-advisory-alienvault-ossim-v4-1">here</a>

4.2.2 - RN1 Policies for Directive Events

The interface for policy creation previously allowed the user to create policies that were not supported by the policy engine.  This only applied to policies for directive events; more conditions were available in the UI then the policy engine supported.  This means some users may have policies existing in their system that are not being completely enforced.  Take note of any policies for directive events that have 'source' and 'destination' as conditions.  The logic in these policies will have to be recreated, either by creating policies that filter the events that trigger the directive, or by adding the conditions to the directive itself.
