Below is a sample of the messages log you will see:

Jul  7 17:00:01 ws0432 splx_entity: [02180:02180] main: Grand child process abort, signal num(6)
Jul  8 19:58:03 ws0432 splx_entity: [02225:02225] main: Grand child process abort, signal num(6)
--cut--
Jul 10 02:02:18 ws0432 splx_entity: [02225:02225] main: Grand child process abort, signal num(6)

You will also see an entity dump file that was detected by the abrt command in the entity log. Below is a sample:

Jul 10 05:51:03 ws0432 abrt[29967]: Saved core dump of pid 28004 (/opt/TrendMicro/SProtectLinux/SPLX.vsapiapp/entity) to /var/spool/abrt/ccpp-2016-07-10-05:50:56-28004 (4240019456 bytes)
Jul 10 05:51:03 ws0432 abrtd: Directory 'ccpp-2016-07-10-05:50:56-28004' creation detected

In such conditions, change the value of the "OpenGPGCheck" item in the /etc/abrt/abrt-action-save-package-data.conf file to "no" to generate the dump file.
