Suricata 4.1.9 and 5.0.4 released

We are pleased to announce the releases of Suricata 4.1.9 and 5.0.4.

These are the second releases after Suricata joined the Oss-Fuzz program, leading to discovery of a number of (potential) security issues. We recommend upgrading as soon as possible.

For the 4.1 branch we’re also announcing the EOL date: December 31st, 2020.
