Cisco ASA Audit Event: 318009

Cisco ASA Events

The logs of network perimeter devices such as firewalls, antivirus applications and intrusion prevention systems contain crucial information that helps to pre-emptively block security attacks and breaches. Hence, it's mandatory for you to monitor and audit these logs. Because Cisco ASA provides the combined functionality of all the three, it becomes all the more important to monitor its logs. 

ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer, a comprehensive log management solution, collects and analyzes the log data from Cisco ASA devices, triggers alerts and generate reports on detected security incidents thus helping you to take suitable measures against security threats, if any.

318009: Reference of stale data encountered in function

Cisco ASA is a security device that provides the combined capabilities of a firewall, an antivirus, and an intrusion prevention system. It also facilitates virtual private network (VPN) connections. It helps to detect threats and stop attacks before they spread through the network.

Message: %ASA-3-318009: OSPF: Attempted reference of stale data encountered in function, line: line_num.

Event 318009 is generated when the OSPF is running and has tried to reference some related data structures that have been removed elsewhere. The function that received the unexpected event and the line number are specified in the message.

How could you resolve this situation?

Clearing interface and router configurations might resolve the problem. However, if this event still appears, some sequence of steps might have caused premature deletion of data structures and that would need to be investigated.

We can help you simplify log management and improve your organization's security with EventLog Analyzer.
