What firewall are you using.
N/A

It could be that the IP was being used by someone who has been using P2P recently, although 170MB is quite a lot for bounced incoming traffic. This is one problem, no matter if your network is protected, any traffic to your external IP for whatever reason, accepted, bounced or retransmitted packets, is counted towards usage.

If it's still going on I suggest you report this to the Plusnet abuse team.
