Since a lot of the requests come from hosts on the WAN with source port 
4672/udp, it is very likely that someone on your LAN has configured a 
p2p client, probably eMule/eDonkey with local port 1574. What you are 
seeing is the WAN hosts trying to send traffic back to that host, which, 
of course, fails. try a netstat -a on all your LAN hosts to see which 
one is listening on port 1574. If oyu simply don't want to see the 
messages, turn off logging for the default rule. :)
