Hi Support,
I support the Amazon AWS account and they just called in about a problem some of their customers are facing with WinPCap. AWS has since reproduced the issues using their machines. Whenever software using WinPCap is installed on Win 2008 r2 x64 with 16 cores or more the NPF.sys process crashes causing a BSOD. The AWS team downloaded the latest version of wireshark and reproduced the problem. However, their customer Alert Logic has software built on top of WinPCap and they first reported the issue as it effects their business.
AWS team can provide servers to help troubleshoot if necessary.

The primary contacts at AWS are:
Scott Zim <scottzim at amazon.com>
Amit Neogy <neogy at amazon.com>
