• Incoming fsxNet corruption

    From wes@keene.co@3:770/3 to All on Thu Feb 23 16:11:12 2017
    Earlier in the day, things were working fine. But now, anytime a packet comes in from fsxNet, it will cause an error in mutil trying to process the packet.

    This is what mutil's log looks like:

    ! Feb 23 18:30:03 Import from /mystic/echomail/in/
    + Feb 23 18:30:03 Extracting 0000fc7d.fr7
    - Feb 23 18:30:03 unzip -oqqjC "/mystic/echomail/in/0000fc7d.fr7" "*.pkt" -d /mystic/temputil/
    + Feb 23 18:30:03 Importing 0e9287d1.pkt (21:1/100 to 21:1/999)
    + Feb 23 18:30:03 Import #0 to FSX_BOT
    + Feb 23 18:30:03 Import #0 to FSX_BOT
    + Feb 23 18:30:03 Shutdown Corrupted memory (216)

    The worst part is that once this happens, you have to delete the packet manually.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    Interesting, do you see this happening across all echoareas of just FSX_BOT?

    I don't know which base it's coming from. I just see that fidopoll has downloaded something that makes mutil throw this error. If there's a way to know where it came from, I'll be happy to look and report back. Let me know.

    Here is the packet in question: https://www.dropbox.com/s/avvamslh71wr0xh/0e9287d1.pkt?dl=0

    It seems to be from SpaceSST BBS, and specifically the file bases.

    Paul, I may have solved it. Somehow (again) some of the message files got owned
    by root, rather than the normal user. I thought I was extra careful, but I must
    have run ./mystic -cfg as the root user. I'll keep an eye on this, but for now,
    it seems like
    things are working.

    Sorry for the trouble.

    Thanks Wes, no that's all good... just glad you managed to suss it out.
