RPM version 3.0.3 ? Silly question, but I dislike RH myself so I
try not to use it... The version of the RPM binary is the same as the
If so I'll give it a try.

The only thing that I've upgraded is bind to 8.2.3. But I've
updated our primary and secondary public nameservers as well and
they are fine. Besides I did that nearly a month ago. The lvs machine
is only running bind and the lvs stuff (pulse et all), whilst the
date machines are running apach, mysql, sendmail and wu-ftp and
seeing constant traffic. They are still fine. Oh I've install joe
as well, can't stand vi ;)
Even more bizarre is that my boss recons the machine did the
same thing for a while before I worked there and then sorted
itself out. Unfortunately the bloke was the proper sysadmin at the time
was on holiday so he couldn't tell me anything useful.
About the only thing left is a hacker at work, but
if that's the case they are dam persistant and even so they
shouldn't be able to cause the problem.
