What suprises me is the Entry during these scans, previous one was from
China I believe.
SHows as
Sun, 2003-03-16 08:51:45 - Administrator login fail, Access deny -

I had changed the admin password to a difficult one, however the Web
administration GUI should be disabled, so I wonder how I am getting the
failed messages. And if these probers have found a way around to get into
the router, and people have set them up as default with the default
password, then it would appear possible to take control of the router from
remote locations, without the interface even being enabled.
I have sent information to Netgear asking if this is a known vulnerability

yes. typical scan for njabl. They operate an anti-spam blocklist and
scan machines for open procies in order to add such sites to their list.
