IptabLes / IptabLex files and processes are running on our system

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I found some IptabLes / IptabLex files in my filesystems partition.
  • My system suddenly started to suffer from slow network traffic.
  • Why am I not able to login to the server via ssh ? Even ssh localhost fails from the console. I am seeing the below errors in /var/log/secure when I try to ssh :-
fatal: mm_request_send: write: Broken pipe
fatal: mm_request_send: write: Broken pipe
