Is there any way to tell if this SNMP trap is something created by a legitimate program? enter image description here

Can you paste the hex dump somewhere please? I'm not typing it out manually. –  Polynomial May 29 '12 at 15:24

No. There is no mechanism in SNMP protocol to identify the source program. If SNMP string is not set to default public then only it helps that a certain program/source can make a request. In your case you have public default string.

Read about SNMP Reflection attack, source IP in the UDP packet is a spoofed address of the target, SNMP response packets get sent back to the target instead of the attacker to cause DoS.
