Opened: Jan 25, 2016
Severity: 2-Critical


When Aced process cannot listen to the port, it aborts and causes core dump to be produced.


Aced process keeps crashing repeatedly.


In certain scenarios, an exiting instance of aced process does not perform a proper cleanup of the socket(listening of port 6000) and does not exit completely and the new instance of aced wont be able to listen to it.



Fix Information

Aced process is fixed in order to explicitly close the socket file descriptor during exit. The new instance will be able to listen to that port.
