Good Morning,

   We just came across an interesting issue... three files were created last night that ls reports as having a size in the exabytes (though du shows as being the proper size).

total 12198
-rw-r--r-- 1 <user / group> 4647714819775210200 Apr 22 01:48 file1
-rw-r--r-- 1 <user / group> 7810701297118485272 Apr 22 01:32 file2
-rw-r--r-- 1 <user / group>  611932097548345030 Apr 21 15:34 file3

 du -h file1
878K    file1
 du -h file2
878K    file2
 du -h file3
582K    file3

We are running 2.5.3 on CentOS 6.5
