[nycbug-talk] FreeBSD box rebooting itself

Problem started today @ 8:30 AM or so...
Nov 12 07:38:47 pluto sshd: error: PAM: authentication error for
illegal user soandso from ipaddress
Nov 12 08:41:59 pluto syslogd: kernel boot file is /boot/kernel/kernel
So you can see this was a hard reboot since no "reboot" was issued or
anything (and I got disk mount complaints later in dmesg):
WARNING: / was not properly dismounted
WARNING: /tmp was not properly dismounted
WARNING: /usr was not properly dismounted
Just happened again about 20 minutes ago.
My first guess is a hardware issue (power supply, etc.), but does anyone
know of any other possibilities? I'm hoping this isn't some super hidden
reboot root kit or something.
