I suspect that is the portscan2 preprocessor. scan.log is it's default 

I'd disable portscan2 if your snort.conf still calls it. It's not really 
very useful IMO, and isn't even mentioned in 2.3's snort.conf anymore.

It could also be sfportscan. Looking at it's code however, it's hard to see 
how it works if you don't specify a logfile option.
