Description Murray McAllister 2014-02-02 19:31:46 EST
When fwsnort was run as a non-root user, it opened the fwsnort.conf file from the current working directory if a configuration file was not explicitly specified. The configuration file can specify a directory to load libraries from, so this would have been an issue if running fwsnort in an attacker-controlled directory.

Michael Rash has released fwsnort-1.6.4 to fix this issue:
