I have a 5510 ASA-SSM-10 with the 6.1(2)E3 version and my inspection load was stuck at 4%, and my processor was stuck at 100%

One of our websites have a SQL Injection attack this morning so I went to check the IDS/IPS and found the above problems. My signature version was 383.0 when I tried to update it to 385.0 it told me it was already installed, it was then I knew I had and issue.

I rebooted the sensor and everything seems to be fine now. I wonder if it got locked up when updating the sig to 384.0 or 385.0
