SuSE Firewall - unknown log message

I was hoping someone could help me out here. I have done a couple of google seaches and have come up with no real answer. I have the following in my log file:

SFW2-INext-DROP-DEFLT IN=ppp0 OUT= MAC= LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=49 ID=61556 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=3199 DPT=135 WINDOW=58944 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 OPT (020405A00103030201010402)
SFW2-INext-DROP-DEFLT IN=ppp0 OUT= MAC= LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=49 ID=61696 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=3199 DPT=135 WINDOW=58944 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 OPT (020405A00103030201010402)
SFW2-IN-ILL-TARGET IN=ppp0 OUT= MAC= LEN=48 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=112 ID=7709 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=32778 DPT=445 WINDOW=64240 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0 OPT (020405AC01010402)
The one I have a question on is the SFW2-IN-ILL-TARGET. What does this mean?
I am accustomed to seeing the DROP, but have never seen an ILL before. I'm assuming it was blocked by the firewall but I don't know for sure.

I get ".......kernel: SuSE-FW-ILLEGAL-TARGET IN=* ....... LEN=48......" quite often and have been told it is a miss configured machine (probably windows) broadcasting for shares or other sevices.
Note the zero "".
