[fw-wiz] Scans on UDP 38072

Recently I've noticed today quite a few denied connections for UDP/38072
and occasionally for TCP/38072 on two different firewalls. I've searched
for some information on this protocol but I couldn't find anything
relevant. Most of the connections come from dynamically assigned IP
addresses. For some IPs there are several connection attempts, each 1
min. 25 seconds apart. Did anyone see this kind of traffic in their logs?
