3 Psionic PortSentry 2.x Changes
5 12-23-2001 - Project Begins.
7 12-23-2001 - 2.0b1 - Here's what I did while rotting in the Greensville, SC
8 and Charlottesville, NC airports today:
9 - Researched pcap support
10 - Wrote pcap functional spec
11 - Broke out new functions for AdvancedStealthMode
12 - Added in JRF's patch
14 3-05-2002 - 2.0b1 - Sat down last week and finally banged all of this out. Here are the
16 - Implemented pcap support
17 - Cleaned up almost every major function.
18 - Deleted lots of redundant code.
19 - Consolidated functions
20 - Broke out analysis engine to add in new checks.
21 - Pulled JRF's patch (sorry Jeremy). Testing with new pcap support for stability
22 first and then will apply changes.
23 - The PORT_BANNER Option has gone away.
24 - The "Classic" TCP/UDP modes have gone away.
25 - Advanced mode TCP/UPD mode is not in operation yet and will be added back
27 - PortSentry runs all protection modes from one process
28 - PortSentry no longer has command line options. Everything is in the config
30 - Eliminated multiple blocked file types.
31 - Test, test, test
33 3-26-2002 - 2.0b1 - More fixes
34 - Cleaned up various functions
35 - Fixed TCP/UDP port parsing function to build out BPF filter
36 - Made configtoken function null out variable before use to allow
37 for checking empty config variables
38 - TCP and UDP modes now work
39 - Parent process now exits without bogus "Shutting down" message
43 - Removed check in SubstString function to check for too great a
44 length in passed arguments because the arithmetic was wrong anyway
45 and it's not needed because excess length is chopped anyway.
46 - Remove DynString function because it's not being used now.
47 - Reads in INTERFACE option from config. Auto-determines interface if set to "auto"
50 - Fixed BPF filter generation. Now ignores local system IP
52 - Put in INTERACE_ADDRESS config option to bypass libpcap's seeming
53 inability to determine the interfaces own address. This needs to
54 be changed to do this automatically later.
55 - Cleaned up adminalert messages to some degree. Made initconfig
56 report adminalerts on config errors for consistency.
57 - Changed .conf comments and removed 333.444.555.666 in bogus
58 addresses and replaced with XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX because some people
59 don't read the directions and try to use the 333.444.555.666
60 address for a bogus route.
61 - Print out monitored port list to log file on init
64 - Removed alerting for unused TCP flags because it can false
65 alarm with Explicit Congestion Notification aware kernels. These
66 flags are still reported under the unknown scan type though.
67 - Cleaned up for public beta.
68 - Changed package so everything runs from portsentry2 directory
69 to prevent people from mashing versions
