Almost reminds me of a kernel OOPS. Never saw it in my logs. It mentions "httpd", possibly some sort of conflict between the webserver's code and what the kernel expects? "inode" refers to filesystems. Would recompiling it help? If it's an old version of (Apache I'm guessing?), possibly updating to the current version would help. Beyond that, you got me...

The server is redhat 7.2 and I have never recompiled it since it's install date. I have ben getting exploit attacks since August and thought this was kind of weird. I do not have sensitive data on the server so the only concern I have is spam or server type hijacking.

I just updated apache to version 1.3.22 about a year ago to handle a PHP 4.2.2. I uses php to send form data via email.

When I have the time, I plan on upgrading to the newest redhat version from scratch for a clean install. But in the mean time I'd like to know what I am up against..

I also did not mention that this is s small sample and have many more in my messages log.
