Hello All,
        The port 137 UDP attemps are being reported by many others in
different NG's. I'm seeing the
same thing in my logs also.I'm seeing a range of source ports from 1024
to 1028 and 1 on 1032.I'm am also getting some from my own domain and
also alot from Asia. This started saturday morning and has picked up
since. here is a link to some info on the rise of Port 137 scans.
"2002-Sep-29... current status: green Yet another mod_ssl worm (analysis
coming soon). Scans for port 137 on the rise." Quoted from internet
storm center.
