Strange messages


Recently, I've been getting these strange messages at startup. In fact the output from dmesg is nothing but these. Can anyone help me decode it? What program could be sending these messages and is it a problem? Thanks in advance.

DROPPED IN=wlan0 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:00:12:17:7d:4b:38:08:00 SRC=10.10.7.234 DST=10.10.7.255 LEN=78 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=24480 PROTO=UDP SPT=137 DPT=137 LEN=58

It looks like broadcast messages that are being logged as they are dropped.

I'm guessing iptables is logging this.

Are you using this box as a router for your network?
