We seem to be running into a problem with our
installation that we don't understand.
We are running "mysql-server-4.0.25" from
the ports collection on a FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE-p10
machine. Its tcpwrapper'd to only allow from our
/24, and a single machine outside the /24.
At times, all of a sudden the server seems
to "freeze". It appears that we've narrowed it down
to an issue with people attacking the server that
come from a site that has a bad reverse DNS setup.
Has anyone else seen this, or knows how
to stop it?
