      Sky scans or attacks ?

      I checked my routers firewall log today and for the first time it showed that there had been some low risk attacks on my system. The address shown is a Sky address. Not sure if its a attack from a Sky customer or if Sky has been trying to find out about what router I have been using.

      Total Number of Attacks
      IP Address Attacker Domain High Risk Med Risk Low Risk
      90.213.234.194 5ad5eac2.bb.sky.com 0 0 3 View attack details
      90.213.127.158 5ad57f9e.bb.sky.com 0 0 2 View attack details

      I think its like the sky digi boxes they dial in or attempt to connect to the sky router and check the firmware. I think its an automated process.
