Subject: bastille: Psad does not work even if configured
Date: 21 Jun 2002 08:55:59 -0000
Package: bastille
Version: 1:1.3.0-2
Severity: grave
Tags: woody, security

The version provided by woody asks for psad but does not configure/install
it properly giving the user a false sense of security. Notice that the sid
package (1:1.3.0-6 currently) does *not* install psad (a decission taken
after talking with people on the debian-user mailing list [1])

Closes: 147643 150614 158803
 bastille (1:1.3.0-2.1) stable; urgency=medium
   * This is a release only for woodyr1. For production environments,
     however, Bastille-1.3.0-6 (or 2.0 is recommended)
   * Fixed Bastille/ (Closes: #158803)
   * Fixed Bastille/ so that it installs the firewalling
     script (Closes: #147643)
   * Removed psad from this package (in 'sid' it's a separate package
     so it also helps transition). This includes modifying debian/rules,
     removing the PSAD stuff from Questions.txt (otherwise the backend
     does not know where to jump to) and changing the 'Required Distro'
     to exclude Debian (DB is already there in Questions.txt wherever
     LINUX is) (Closes: #150614)
