    We have ProFTPD Version 1.2.10 installed and we are wondering if there is some sort of memory leak in this version?

    Almost everytime a ip access' proftpd we see 'free (): invalid pointer 0x9434520!' in our logs.

    Anyone aware of this issue?

    Go on, have a guess
    Not something I've seen, but you could try for a newer release if it's available with:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/ftpup

    Ok I am at a loss here now.

    We swapped out the RAM sticks, replaced the chassy and forced a reinstall of proftpd and I am still getting memory pointer errors with Proftpd.

    Jun 9 20:44:05 server3 proftpd[24215]: server3.dnscow.com (127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session opened.
    Jun 9 20:44:05 server3 free(): invalid pointer 0x82be478!
    Jun 9 20:44:05 server3 proftpd[24215]: server3.dnscow.com (127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session closed.

    I have no clue why this is happening.

    Can someone help me out on this? Its causing our server to lockup after 3 days up.
