looking at a full packet capture and found couple of weird DNS probes, the
http one was one of them. Unfortunately I have no specific context for the

Thanks! Finding the actual rule submitter is just what I was hoping for.

It is interesting! Why in the world some random Chinese IPs are trying to
throw HTTP GETs at UDP 53 makes no sense to me either, but I have the pcaps
to prove you weren't crazy when you wrote that rule!
