Code Red -> Router Memory depletion?
We've seen two routers experiencing problems this AM that appear to be related to client swervers infected with the IIS Code Red virus. I say appear because of the timing with cpu profiles on downstream routers where infections broke out, but I don't have any direct evidence. The first one was a border router: Jul 19 08:00:47 5093: 2w5d: %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL: Memory allocation of 65540 bytes failed from 0x603BF35C, pool Processor, alignment 0 Jul 19 08:00:47 5094: -Process= "BGP Router", ipl= 0, pid= 86 # sh ver uptime is 4 hours, 46 minutes System returned to ROM by bus error at PC 0x603BFCFC, address 0xFFFFFFF0 at 05:57:21 UTC Thu Jul 19 2001 The other one is a client aggregation router Jul 19 12:02:49 192: %SYS-2-MALLOCFAIL: Memory allocation of 1964 bytes failed from 0x314DA4A, pool Processor, alignment 0 Jul 19 12:02:49 193: -Process= "OSPF Router", ipl= 0, pid= 32 (This router is still functioning, but not allowing any incoming connections on telnet). -Mike
