    SID 0.4.2 has been released.

    This release supports Solaris 8+ (SPARC, i386) and Linux 2.4 and x86
    2.6 kernels.

    SID aims at detecting unwanted PTY action on UNIX systems. SID is a
    kernel-imposed host-based IDS. The kernel part plugs into the terminal
    processing subsystem and logs hashed terminal lines. The user part
    reads these hashes and takes appropriate action upon finding unexpected
    log entries.

    SID 0.4.2 adds privilege dropping to the user part and fixes issues
    with multicharacter input on the Linux 2.6 kernel part.

    SID can be downloaded from

    Please enjoy.
