In this case it was Kiwi that I noticed the syslog messages in from my
Netgear DG834GT, so the packets never actually made it onto my network.
The traffic was so high that it bordered on a DOS attack since I couldn't
access the web with any great speed.

Unfortuately, I assumed it was afterglow, because of the lack of reports on
Dshield, but was curious as to what app was causing it.

Usually, I will forward that port to my linux box and capture the traffic,
but this time I didn't think it was malicious enough to do that.
Apologies. I should have made it clearer that I was really after the app
causing the afterglow.

As it appears to be a Kazaa related app, perhaps the recent Brit Pop 2006
Awards has caused a demand for music in the past few days.
