Snort Fatal Error
Snort 188.8.131.52 pkg v. 2.5.1
Snort crashed with the following fatal error:
snort: FATAL ERROR: What is this "l"(0x6C) doing in your binary buffer? Valid hex values only please! (0x0 - 0xF) Position: 2
It is not the 1st time it crashes, so I will check again the next time it happens to provide more feedback.
I will upgrade to 2.5.2 and let's see if it will happen again.
I updated to latest versions two days ago but today snort crashed again with the following error.
Services: Snort 184.108.40.206 pkg v. 2.5.2
snort: FATAL ERROR: Character value out of range, try a binary buffer.

Have you tried a complete uninstall (without keeping settings?) and a complete new install?
A complete uninstall and reinstall "without keeping settings" solved the problem.
