All,

Please note that the Linux based firewall smoothwall
(http://www.smoothwall.org) is using a vulnerable version of snort.
A patch has been released for the stable GPL 1.0 version:
http://www.smoothwall.org/home/news/item/20030305.01.html
However, no patch has been released for the beta version GPL 2.0
Mallard. If you are running this version you should disable snort from
the admin configuration panel.

A patch is now available from our website:
http://smoothwall.org/beta/bugs/mallard-005.html which disables the rpc
preprocessor in SmoothWall GPL 2.0 beta4.  We will include a recompiled
version of snort 1.91 in the next beta build, as was our intention.
