DoS attacks

  • I continually see the following Dos attacks on my router log. Is this just noise or phishing from hostile servers?  Can someone explain what is going on here?

Re: DoS attacks

Internet background noise such as that will never be stopped. Your firewall is doing its job. Don't sweat it !
