I am running Linux on my PC. Recently I have been getting loads of messages in the sys.log of the form

Sep 30 18:19:21 Lavankossot kernel: [ 598.127314] INPUT packet died: IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=01:00:5e:00:00:fb:94:db:56:07:0c:6c:08:00 SRC=192.168.1.121 DST=224.0.0.251 LEN=68 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=255 ID=59756 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=5353 DPT=5353 LEN=48

192.168.1.121 is a Sony android television on my network

As I understand it 224.0.0.251 is related to DNS
192.168.1.51 is my PC

Is my television trying to hack into my computer?

Thanks for any advice.

Tcpdump the packets then check them out in Wireshark. It is some kind of multi cast packet.

I appreciate that the first line is multicast. The second line appears much more often in the log and appears to be directed at my PC. Does this mean the TV sees my PC on the network and directs a multicast to it?
