Hi,

Thanks for your reply. Bur unfortunately this event required attention as it's indicates that there is a inbound packet blocked by windows filtering. It could be a attempt of hacking.

Also, the windows firewall service in question should be on in windows 2008 environment. You can also refer this tech article and install the required hotfix (the error events are same)

Hope this helps

Hi,

This looks like the windows firewall hasn't set correctly for the inbound traffic. Also, it could be edge traversal settings. Have a look at this MS article and try to set edge traversal and see it stops the event.

The Windows firewall on that server is off.  If it's not a concern, then I can just ignore it, correct?

I tried to get WHOIS listing of 239.255.255.250 but could not find any details and the port 138 is used by NetBIOS  protocol used for File and Print Sharing under all current versions of Windows.

As this public IP is not from valid source it may be attempt of attack so would recommend you to check impact by blocking this IP on your external firewall and run full AV scan in safe mode
