The attack is coming from your own internal network (192.168......) so probably its not terribly dangerous and in any case the router appears to have blocked it and logged it. But it could also indicate that one of the computers in the network is infected and the resident AV has failed to detect it. Its also possible your router is mistaken and is dropping legit packets.

To be safe, scan your machines with malwarebytes antimalware and maybe also some online virus scanners. After a thorough cleanup, reboot the router.

CoolerMaster Storm Scout
Do any of you have this case, or have any first person feedback about one? I'm moving my PC from a basement to a new home office, and I feel like I need a case with some better air-flow and cooling. I read some reviews that seem positive, but I figured I'd toss the question up on here too.
