iptables logging prefix gets corrupted

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I've been using iptables for some time but recently noticed that the log prefix I'd set had got corrupted. In /etc/iptables/rules.v4` I have: -A LOGNDROP -j LOG --log-prefix "iptables denied: " --log-level 7 I found that in /var/log/syslog I actually have records like Jul 25 20:10:04 zotac kernel: [688421.696561] --log-prefixIN=wlan0 OUT= MAC=1c:4b:d6:ee:a9:64:00:24:17:0c:a7:ef:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=40 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=44 ID=36871 PROTO=TCP SPT=587 DPT=60497 WINDOW=0 RES=0x00 RST URGP=0 Where the log prefix has somehow got set to --log-prefix.I can fix this b (HowTos)
