We run legitimate NuFW (http://www.nufw.org) clients in heavy loop with
false login and password. There's a queuing mechanism which sends newly
established connections to a pool of threads which work on user
authentication. As it has to wait for a moment, we may have been
experimenting some datas corruption by buffer overflow or something else
(We aren't sure why this raised this problem since we did not actually
try to send corrupted datas).
