Curious about Port Scan
Got a an interesting series of port scans picked up by my firewall - normally its the standard TCP ports coming from addresses on my subnet, but got a bunch of six sequential scans targetting UDP coming from IP's xxx.xxx.xxx.160 through to 165 - one after the other within about 8 mins.
Im just curious as to what they are trying to accomplish or what the tactic is here as I rarely notice my UDP ports being scanned and have never seen this "sequential" scan before.
Anyone know whats happening here or seen this before ?
