Sourcefire is aware of an issue in Snort that can produce segmentation
faults in certain circumstances. This issue occurs when Snort is
handling a large number of sessions and the configuration item
cache_clean_percent is set to anything other than 0.
Open-source Snort users who have not manually modified the default
configuration for stream4 are unaffected by this issue. Only users who
have added the cache_clean_percent option to their stream4 configuration
are affected. They should change their configuration to use the
parameter cache_clean_sessions instead.
The latest CVS source downloads for the Snort 2.6.1, 2.6.0, and 2.4
branches now contain a fix for this issue. The next version of Snort
will contain this fix. Thanks to Eric Hines from Applied Watch for
reporting the issue.
