Bug#360484: tripwire: Tripwire requires is policy text files "on line"--security problem
Tripwire now requires its "policy" text files on line and will segfault
and crash with it/them.
For security reasons, it was recommended to keep these off line in safe
storage. Requiring them on line is not secure behavior and it always
worked with the encrypted/binary versions before.
