I've been running argus (1.7) for close to a year now. I found that
it would crash once every few weeks, so I wrote a 'driver' that would
monitor it, log a message and restart it if it would ever crash.
Well, the past few days, I've been seeing it crash dozens of times
an hour... Starting at suppertime...
I suspect that some strange types of packets are overflowing buffers
and screwing things up. I'm also suspecting that these packets
are related to some kind of attack/probe/exploit/etc.
Is there some kind of thing using some weirdly-formed packets going
around these days?
Do I remember reading here about an argus mailing list?
