srcds.exe Random crash

Ok well the basic problem is that I am running my dedicated server and every once and a while it will randomly crash and so i went into the event viewer and i looked at it and this is what is says for it:

Faulting application name: srcds.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x4b071a4a
Faulting module name: datacache.dll, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x4877a96b
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00001925
Faulting process id: 0xf1c
Faulting application start time: 0x01cab248c38cb890
Faulting application path: C:\SRCDS\orangebox\srcds.exe
Faulting module path: c:\srcds\orangebox\bin\datacache.dll
Report Id: b8eeccbc-2464-11df-b18c-000c29c057fe

Any Ideas???

Faulting module path: c:\srcds\orangebox\bin\datacache.dll

This could be a fault of “random crash” or someone is crashing your server. There is an exploit which made/makes my server crash on datacache.dll too. It could also be that this is some other thing since datacache, even by looking at its name, does quite a lot so it might be another problem too.
One thing that inevitably pops up into my mind is bad hard disk, but no, can’t be. Guess you’re just getting exploited. Tough luck.

Weird. Thanks anyway… it would make sense since someone always seems to join and then it crashes without saying they left…?
