Snort 2.9.2.3 pkg v. 2.5.4 Error in logs



  • I just installed the Snort package, as well as most rules. Everything seems to be working OK (I haven't seen if Snort is blocking anything bad yet), but every minute I keep getting the same two error messages in the logs:

    Google and search hasn't revealed any answers. If everything else was OK, I'd be inclined to leave it. However, I'm using a flash drive, and I'm worried this might prematurely wear out the drive.

    Thanks!
