Hi,

I downloaded and installed the SYSLOGD update from your site. Your warning
is that there was a Denial of Attack in the old SYSLOGD.
Now what happens:
Since then my /var/log/messages says:

etc. etc.
It looks like it is trying to get in all computers in the domain on port
137 and 138.
How to get back the old SYSLOGD ???

Ports 137 & 138 are netbios stuff; perhaps you have a samba
server that's trying to talk to itself? (NMBD will do this
periodically...)

Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2000-02-03 20:27:59 UTC
The kernel firewalling code generates these messages when you have turned on
logging for a specific firewall rule. This is unrelated to your sysklogd update.
