Bug Description

Binary package hint: ufw

The following can be added to /etc/ufw/after.rules before the 'catchall for logging' to not fill the logs with blocks from noisy services:

# don't log noisy services by default
-A ufw-after-input -p tcp --dport 137 -j RETURN
-A ufw-after-input -p udp --dport 137 -j RETURN
-A ufw-after-input -p tcp --dport 138 -j RETURN
-A ufw-after-input -p udp --dport 138 -j RETURN
-A ufw-after-input -p tcp --dport 445 -j RETURN
-A ufw-after-input -p udp --dport 445 -j RETURN
-A ufw-after-input -p udp --dport 67 -j RETURN
-A ufw-after-input -p udp --dport 68 -j RETURN
