We are getting this annoying repeated errors in the errorlog

Error: 17836, Severity: 20, State: 1
Length specified in network packet payload did not match number of bytes read; the connection has been closed. Please contact the vendor of the client library. [CLIENT: x.x.x.x]

We dont have log shipping or any jobs that constantly ping the SQl Server port.

Questions is
a. Is it a serious error or just informative?
b. If it is just informative error is there anyway we can avoid getting this error?
c. Is there anyway we can configure SQL Server so that it wont write this error to error log?

We are on SQL 2005 SP2

This is SQL Server 2005 reporting that you sent some invalid bytes to it in a request.  SQL Server 2000 did not have this level of error reporting.

This error will also appear when someone tries to telnet to your sql server for testing or probing.
