> We need to at least all get to 220.127.116.11. 2.8.4 is over a year old, I think it came out in May of 09. It's important to stay current, or at least current-ish. Aside from the new functionality and speed improvements, we make improvements to make detection more accurate, and detect things you may be missing with an older version.
You're insane... :)
> By supporting older versions, I think, personally, all you are doing is keeping people content with the older versions of software. Supporting their bad habits is not good. That's not Sourcefire's opinion, that's just mine, but you wouldn't keep an old unpatched version of adobe reader around, because it's "too difficult" to upgrade would you?
I'd keep people on older versions of Adobe unless they needed the new
features added or weren't vulnerable to a security vulnerability. Adobe
is a poor comparison here.
Does't the SF appliance run an outdated "custom rolled" version of RHEL?
RHEL isn't known for being current, they're known for being STABLE.
That's an odd choice for an GNU/Linux base isn't it?
