Lots of UDP traffic being blocked

Recently I have seen a big increase in UDP traffic being blocked on my firewall. I don't run any services on my home PC that works over UDP that I am aware of and the traffic seems to be coming from client IPs on the BT network.

 

Most of the blocked traffic is going to port UDP/26091

 

Anyone else experiencing this traffic?

I'm not.

Are you on a static IP? How long have you had your current WAN IP address? If it started when you got the IP address, it's probably due to the activities of the previous user of that IP address.

I am not on a static and this traffic continues even after moving to a new IP. The external source IP can vary but its all UDP traffic.

Re: Lots of UDP traffic being blocked

Anyone else experience large amounts of udp traffic? I am still experiencing it and I have not yet been able to work out what is causing it.
