grsec failed fork with errno -22 by /usr/sbin/vsftpd
During large FTP file copy operations, my syslog is flooded with the following error:
Oct 5 13:21:21 hostname user.alert kernel: grsec: From 10.0.0.1: failed
fork with errno –22 by /usr/sbin/vsftpd[vsftpd:6118] uid/euid:0/0
gid/egid:0/0, parent /usr/sbin/
vsftpd[vsftpd:5709] uid/euid:0/0 gid/egid:0/0
The connection occasionally reset and I get disconnected.
I’m running v2.0.2 Linux hostname 22.214.171.124-grsec #2 (closed)-Alpine SMP Thu Sep 23 07:53:55 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux.
A strace will follow soon.
