Software Release - psad-1.4.5

The 1.4.5 release of psad is ready for download. Here is an excerpt from the ChangeLog:
  • Bugfix in IPTables::Parse to allow the limit target to apply to logging rules.
  • Made calls to chain creation and jump rule functions for only every 100 block calls in auto-IDS mode.
  • Bugfix to make sure /var/run/psad directory exists at startup since this directory is removed by some Linux distributions at boot time.
  • Bugfix for zero masks in auto_dl; this allows a network of "" to be specified.
  • Enhanced -D output to include "uname -a" and "perl -V" output.
