Submission + - 8X Spike in Asterisk Login Attempts in August 2

tinkerghost writes: Sometime this weekend, my Asterisk/mail server hit the disk limit on the /var directory. Why you ask? Because it turns out my Asterisk server has been logging about 4Gig worth of login attempts per week since late July. I had logrotate set to cycle the file out weekly and keep 4 weeks of logs. Since the log has been steady at about 500Mb/week for the last 2 years this has worked fine. Unfortunately, this new rush overwhelmed my disk space and locked out new voicemail & email messages. I've already re-configured logrotate to rotate on file size, but I'm wondering if any other SIP server users have been seeing a huge spike in their scripted login attempts.
