I believe it's windows messenger traffic, most likely spam. 

Search google for udp port 1026 and you'll get a lot of links regarding 
it.  Activity to the windows messenger port seems to have been on the 
upswing since early December.

I know that ICQ (a chat program) used udp port 1027.  That could be spam 
coming in, too.

I'm getting literally hammered by tons of various IP's on UDP 1026 and UDP 

I've attached a CSV log, modified a bit, from my NetScreen 5.  I only
showed the last 15 bytes of the Source IP:Port so the first octet,
give or take a few bytes, is cut off.  I left a few columns out as

Let me know, this has been going on for quite a while, and all my
searches are ending in vain.  Any ideas?
