yeah, its a known issue caused by our magic number which was not really unique.

more info : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=579973.msg12391031#msg12391031

how to see the conflicting affect: https://chainz.cryptoid.info/karm/#!network

immediate fix: Do nothing. As your wallet is still functional. it can receive and send coins normally. What happens the wallet sees those other network nodes and goes out of sync for a very short short time. then it rejects those nodes. But then again sees other nodes. If you read your log. you will see a lot of disconnects.

long fix: redownload the blockchain. but this won't guarantee your node will not connect to out of network nodes and go back to same status:

Karma code fix : Either a soft fork or Hard fork will be needed. At this time there is no one really working on this. sorry.
      soft fork : fix this problem by changing the pchmessage characters to unique ones(not used by others)
      hard fork: Do the above but also change/improve/add/remove some features of the current code.
