My iptables is setup to block all unneeded ports as it should but I'm checking my syslog due to these random but all-to-frequent apache2 crashes and I noticed a lot of requests such as this. In all the archived syslogs that I have these are present from different IP addresses.

There is a similar question with an accepted here: What service uses UDP port 60059?

I'm not overly experienced with server configuration and debugging, so I only just installed logcheck after reading that previous question.

I guess my question is what steps should I take after reading this log info to 1) further protect myself, 2) understand if this could be causing any other problems with my VPS, and 3) use this data to help others?

Or should I be unconcerned with this entirely since iptables is doing it's job? Was just curious why it's that port specifically that gets all the attention. –  Nathan C. Jun 4 '12 at 23:52

Iptables is doing it's job - confirm nothing unexpected is listening by checking netstat (just like in your referenced question) - and the answer on that other question applies as well.

I see this all the time on clients that don't have a perimeter firewall in place.
