Summary     : Implementation of an E-component of Network Intrusion Detection System
Description :
Libnids is an implementation of an E-component of Network Intrusion
Detection System. It emulates the IP stack of Linux 2.x and offers
IP defragmentation, TCP stream assembly and TCP port scan detection.

Using libnids, one has got a convenient access to data carried by a
TCP stream, no matter how artfully obscured by an attacker.

Update Information:

libnids 1.24 (Mar 14 2010):     - fixed another remotely triggerable NULL
dereference in ip_fragment.c   - unofficial patch that enables tracking of
already established TCP connections   - missing reset of some tcp_* variables
upon nids_exit   - correct calculation of radiotap header   - compilation
warning fixes with newer gcc   - use pcap_get_selectable_fd() instead of
pcap_fileno()      dsniff-2.4-0.9.b1:     - Rebuild against libnids 1.24

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update libnids' at the command line.
