Pix crash (Garbage collector?)

Good morning I'm writing you because few days ago the Cisco Pix appliance, installed on the network of my Company, had a crash.

Few seconds before make statefull fail-over (with the standby unit), I could capture the last log messagges and I send you in attach, with some informations about my Pix.

I don't understand which event(s) could have crash the Pix; my syslog server, that log the Pix messagges (logging trap warnings), have reported more session from different internet IP source, that scanning our pubblic IP addresses on port 139/tcp, the IPs target of the scanning not all was allocated an used (tipycally in scannig the attacker try all the IPs of a network class..)

Any information that you can send me are welcomed


Re: Pix crash (Garbage collector?)

To the best of my knowledge, the CSCec19113 has worked out to fix the PIX crash in thread PIX Garbage Collector in pix_gc. The upgrade version is Software Release 6.3(4), and I can suggest you to upgrade this software if you using lower version.
