Thank you Russ


Yes we are working with libnet 1.0.2a


Just a reminder 2.8.6 work perfectly in a sniffer mode. The problem occurs
only in inline mode running in the background. If I use the -Qvc the sig
error will not happen

Might this be a libnet issue?  Are you sure you are linking with the correct
version for your platform?

Running snort 2.8.6 with the flowing command line:


/snort286inline/bin/snort -QDc /mnt/smlog/snort286inline/etc/snort.conf -l
/mnt/smlog/logs br0


Result in the following error:


initializing Inline mode

building cached socket reset packets

** glibc detected *** /mnt/smlog/snort286inline/bin/snort: malloc(): memory
corruption: 0x000000000143ece0 ***

====== Backtrace: =========



This is the config options:

re --enable-build-dynamic-examples --enable-ipv6 --enable-gre
--enable-timestats --enable-perfprofiling --enable-inline
--enable-sourcefire --enable-aruba --enable-react --enable-flexresp2
--with-libpcap-libraries=/usr/lib64 --with-libpcre-libraries=/usr/lib64

--with-libnet-includes=/usr/include --with-libnet-libraries=/usr/lib64
--with-dnet-libraries=/usr/lib64 --with-mysql=/usr/share/mysql


ip_queue and iptables_ filter were modprobe + iptables  -I FORWARD -j QUEUE


Can you help with this


Many thanks
