Google noop crashing snort

  • When I google a string of ccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc's to test snort it crashes every time.  Can anyone reproduce this?

    pfsense 2.0.1 amd64
    emerging threats db
    snort monitoring lan or wan interface

    google cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc

    watch snort fail instantly from top.

  • doesnt happen to me.
    your hardware may be unstable, (cpu overheat/ overheated ram..)? if you have less than 4gb ram, try installing 32bit pfsense instead and see if problem still happens, maybe

  • Doesn't cause any problems on our systems.
    However it may not be down to snort per se but could be caused by the rules you have active.

    Is there anything in the system logs?
