At first I'd like to state that my knowledge in IP spoofing, DoS, networks and their security is very limited.
Though, I ve read on Wikipedia and got informed.
So the story is like this.
I ve lost my connection to WAN and ADSL for about 4-5 minutes.
I always want to check my logs on router when this happens so I can diagnose if it's me or the ISP.
But today I saw *SMURF* on my logs.
By my mistake, the log has been cleared But I ve made a quick look up on the IP that attempted (succeded?) the scan:
This log doesnt say much for me who dont have the knowledge so at first I'd like you to tell me what it says in plain english.
I suppose is the anti-forwarding of my router?
Secondly, I google for prevention, and my Firewall (on router) is configured right:
After reconnecting my log has been clear:

Did Malwarebytes scan but came up clear.
How so we/I know that the hacker didnt succeed?
Where do these scans come from?
Thank you for all your help, and for reading.
Also did some netstat -b and netstat -n commands, they came up clear. Can post the log if you wish.
