Make sure that Snort's shared objects match the intended version of Snort.

It looks like your are using shared objects not complied against the Snort version you are are running. Usually this happens during Snort upgrades when one forgets to copy the shared objects that ship with upgrade code of Snort. This also may happen when an older Snort version may have been installed through repo and then upgraded through source code compilation.

Either ways, make sure sure that shared objects in use the ones that come with the version of Snort you are running.
