What could be the reason of the below segmentation fault?
Are they related ??

I am using centOS 5.

myBinary is crashing with below error:

CentOS 5 is end of life. If you are not currently running 5.11 with kernel 2.6.18-419 then you should update as those are the last versions that will ever be released. There will be no more fixes or support for CentOS 5.

You should plan to migrate to a supported release. CentOS 6 enters production phase 3 in May 2017 after which only critical fixes will be released until it goes EOL in 2020. CentOS 7 is supported until 2024.

If you are locked to CentOS 5 then your best bet is to obtain a RHEL EUS subscription and migrate your CentOS 5 system to RHEL 5. They will provide essential security updates for a little while longer though the cost may be more than you want.

I can't tell you anything about those errors. I can only tell you that whatever it is that is wrong will never get fixed if it is a bug in CentOS. It's EOL. It's had 10 whole years and now it has no support at all left. You need to migrate to a supported version.
