Host-based IDS OSSEC 2.2 released

The OSSEC team is pleased to announce the general availability of OSSEC version 2.2. This new version is the first one with support for centralized configurations and realtime integrity monitoring on Linux.

The most notable changes are:

  • Trend OSCE (Office scan) support – We added rules to properly monitor and analyze Trend logs
  • WordPress Monitoring – WordPress is a popular blogging platform with very little logging by default. We create a plugin to extend its logging capabilities and created rules on OSSEC to monitor it.
  • More Logging support – We added support for vpopmail, roundcube, Netscreen IDS and a few more log formats.

For more information on OSSEC read our interview with the project founder.
