Pieces of Software: OSSEC on Ubuntu / Debian


Just check this out: Debian taking 3 years!!!!! to resolve their usual openssl vs. GPL license issue for a already prepared .deb package.

Currently they’re discussing it. Currently means: for 3 months now.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=361954

So kids, that’s why there is no premade package for OSSEC. On the other hand this doesn’t remotely explain why the source package isn’t made available.
