ICMP flood attack from router


Recommended Posts

Hi. I have recently had a series of warnings from my ESET software about a computer executing af ICMP flood attack on my PC. The attacking computer turns out to be my own local home network router. Should I be worried? Is my router conpromised or infected? What action should I take?

Best regards
Morten

I have the same issue.  

It is hard to imagine that there aren't literally millions of home networks with a modem registered as 192.168.1.1.

I have a Netgear R7000 running the latest firmware and default settings.

What exactly is EIS detecting in this "ICMP flood"? and if you exclude your modem, what happens if the day comes it in fact becomes compromised?

I consider this false positive a security risk.
