This questions are starting to become somewhat of a FAQ.
My answer is, if you do not know what port is related to an attack you
are receiving it might be worth checking:
- To see which ports are actively being probed/attack:
http://isc.incidents.org/ or http://www.dshield.org/
(https://analyzer.securityfocus.com/ seems to have had this
info previously but does not seem to make it public
anymore). More specifically: http://isc.incidents.org/top10.html
- To see what service might be associated to a given port check
Unfortunately a search in any of these regarding 12980
didn't return a thing so you might want to report it to ISC.
