I got a portscan on 137 from rr.com.  Of course, I've got a Debian box with
nothing listening on 137, so there's no harm done.  I sent them the log entry
and a short message that said that they might have a problem with that box.
Their reply was that the probe I received was most likely a reply to some
sort of web surfing that I was doing and that maybe if I had a more
sophistocated alarm installed, it would show this.  I laughed.  Oh well, I
was trying to do them a favor.

At any rate, I've been seeing an increase in port 137 scans over the past
month or so.
