[Snort-users] Suspicious ICMP traces

Hello.  I'm interested in finding out what this packet trace might
represent.  I've done some reading on the subject and this looks like some
kind of ICMP tunnel to me.  Specifically, I'm worrried that this might be
a Loki type tunnel.

I'm not really sure so I thought I'd pass this along for second opinions.  
One thing that raised my suspicions was that the ICMP packet seems to
contain a UDP datagram within it.  (Or am I jumping the gun on that?)

So, here is the relevant portion of alert:

[**] [1:485:1] ICMP Destination Unreachable (Communication
Administratively Prohibited) [**]
10/21-20:21:24.622037 12.125.63.42 -> 192.168.75.7
ICMP TTL:246 TOS:0x0 ID:64752 IpLen:20 DgmLen:56
Type:3  Code:13  DESTINATION UNREACHABLE: PACKET FILTERED
** ORIGINAL DATAGRAM DUMP:
192.168.75.7:137 -> 216.73.128.3:137
UDP TTL:112 TOS:0x0 ID:50100 IpLen:20 DgmLen:96
Len: 76
** END OF DUMP

I've got maybe 10,000 of these over a few day period.  I'm also seeing
portscans from 192.168.75.7 so I'm pretty sure something is not right
here.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
