Something on your system was probably set up to send SIGKILLs to processes
that match some sort of profile (for example, high short-term average
CPU use, or high total CPU use, or high memory use). Or maybe it just
SIGKILLs random processes for the hell of it. I don't trust that
"hardened" Linux crap one bit.
