The OISF development team is pleased to announce Suricata 2.0.8. This
release fixes a number of issues in the 2.0 series.

The most important issue is a bug in the DER parser which is used to
decode SSL/TLS certificates could crash Suricata. This issue was
reported by Kostya Kortchinsky of the Google Security Team and was fixed
by Pierre Chifflier of ANSSI.

Those processing large numbers of (untrusted) pcap files need to update
as a malformed pcap could crash Suricata. Again, credits go to Kostya

A number of other issues were fixed. Upgrading is highly recommended.
