|861546, 865557, 876159, |
|Vulnerability in OpenSSL 1.0.2 that mishandles the carry propagation and produces incorrect output. This issue was reported by the National Vulnerability Database (CVE-2015-3193). |
|(LEM Database Server) The server requires additional Java Archive (JAR) files to function properly. |
|(LEM Manager) The DNS settings are not preconfigured, causing LEM Manager to run out of memory. |
|(LEM Manager) Vulnerability to an XML external entity injection through the agent message-processing service. This issue was reported by Digital Defense® Inc. (DDIVRT-2015-55). |

|Agent service stops immediately after installing using new InstallAnywhere and after running for 20 minutes. In both cases, the service restarts after 120 seconds and then runs flawlessly.|
|Unmatched security data occurs during MS-SQL auditor installation.|
|nDepth behaves inconsistently when you toggle between "Text input mode" and "Drag & Drop mode."|
|Exporting a filter to nDepth with certain data string text values can cause data mismatches. This is because nDepth only supports comparing these fields to boolean values. For example, if the isThreat field may be set to a boolean value, but filter conditions allow comparing the isThreat field against the string text values 'true' or 'false', as well as boolean values true or false.To avoid data mismatches, make sure the filter is set only to boolean values true or falsebefore importing to nDepth.|
|One of the following errors may occur when restarting snort: "An error occured. Exiting." or "The following error |
occured: ERROR: Cannot start snort on interface eth0."
|Windows 10 appears in the LEM Console as Windows 8.1.|
