As jamie indiacted I am opening another ticket to solve another strange error.
Description: The error is associated with: /etc/webmin/virtual-server/collectinfo.pl running from root cronjob I am getting hundreds of messages like: kernel: grsec: denied resource overstep by requesting 226050048 for RLIMIT_STACK against limit 8388608 for /usr/bin/dpkg-query[dpkg-query:8509] uid/euid:0/0 gid/egid:0/0, parent /bin/bash[sh:8508] uid/euid:0/0 gid/egid:0/0 (I am running a grsec enabled kernel obviously) It does NOT happen on every run but on most !!!
After MUCH debugging and enabling some syslog logging, I traced the insect back to the function:
of file /usr/share/webmin/web-lib-funcs.pl
this command is trying to run the command
COLUMNS=1024 dpkg --list
and this produces the error !!! (In perl term is trying to run EXACTLY the following: return open(software::PKGINFO, "COLUMNS=1024 dpkg --list >$/dev/null |");
Any ideas of why this is happening ???
So Many thanks again Ioannis
