The syslog is continuously flooded with the same messages.

Hi, Yesterday I was looking at the folder /var/log/ and I noticed that the syslog file is continuously growing: it never stops. I made a short explicative video (attached to this ticket): in this video we can see the output of "tail -f /var/log/syslog" and the syslog file which continuously grows. It quickly reach the size of 512 KB, the file is created again, and then this strange behaviour is incessantly repeated. I also attach the syslog itself.
I choose "General" as Component, because I have no idea about the culprit.
