Default DoS Attack: ACK Scan. Should I be worried about this?

So I was looking through my router's logs and I noticed a lot of lines that look like this:

[DoS Attack: ACK Scan] from source:, port 80, Sunday, May 20,2012 20:12:29

Is this something to be concerned about?

No! Perhaps this is related to your ISP. It is an address for Limelight Networks.
