DDOS Attacks in Router - caused by Runescape Launcher

Been getting the following alert in my Netgear WNR1000v3 Logs:
[DoS attack: STORM] attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [192.168.1.43]
Finally got off my backside to investigate it, and found it was caused by my son using the Runescape Launcher. Apparantly he installed it because Jagex say it cuts down on lag. I suspect it does this by opening multiple connections to the server, which the router interprets as a DoS attack.
Just though y'all might like to know, in case you get the same.
