The firewall in my modem router keeps giving me warnings about outside attempts to talk to my Dreambox. The most frequent one warns of IP spoofing, but I also get quite a few UDP Flood to Host and recently Probable ASCEND Probe alerts. I'm running the 2.50 Gemini image and I've set it up to download the Gemini news automatically. For the last few days I've also been tuning into Shoutcast streams a lot.

Should I be worried?

Not if your Firewall is doing it's job - it looks like it is.

Only me trying to watch your mature content movies ;)

Bit worrying though isn't it? Think the IHAD team are safe, but I'd nail down anything else. Does the firewall have the relevant ports fully stealthed?

Also, does your firewall filter OUTGOING traffic?!?! If not, you could be inviting attacks unknowingly.
