Hello everone...I was going through my security logs this morning and
something I hadn't seen before:

Sep 26 08:05:33 c101**** icmplog: source quench from

What is the source quench all about? Is that some kind of malicous activity?
did an nslookup on the ip and it was not found...I've never seen this and
would like to know what it means. Thanks...
