Having read about yesterday's denial of service attacks using bot-nets made up of Internet of Things devices, I decided to check my modem router's logs and I see a bunch of these alerts: Googling the alert led to information (http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/607966-D-Link-Modem-Log-kernel-intrusion) that these logs indicate that hackers are trying to scan for open ports (the DPT entry) on my router. They say that this indicates that the router is doing its job and is harmless. They also advised to be weary if the router keeps dropping the internet connection. This might be an indication that your router has been hacked. Always make sure that your internet-connected devices are not using the default login credentials.
