A few days back there was a virus in the office. It just sent requests
to n3t.com.br a non-existence domain. The result was that the access.log
file grew almost 1.8Gb and squid stopped. I still had a space of 10Gb on
the file system where logs were dumped. Why did squid stop then?
Unfortunately, I could not do much so I immediately stoped squid,
removed the access.log file after checking the culprit 5 IPs and deleted
the file. Then the culprit machines were physically removed from the
network and then squid was restarted. I rotate logs everyday at morning
08.00 to have reports through calamaris. In such a suitation, what is the
best way to deal with it?

Thanks a lot and bye.
With warm regards,
