eth0 -- shared cable-modem /24 subnet
eth1 -- shared internal 192.168 subnet

So, the packets probably came from one of the other 250+ customers on the
cable-modem subnet -- not from just anywhere on the Internet because those
attempts would have been stopped by the cable's router.

So, one of my "neighbors" is manufacturing packets.  Cute.

Thanks for the info!
