Hi, my router logs show a constant stream of alerts with the following message:
kern.alert kernel: [433871.160000] Teardrop Attack... with SRC equal to every device I have connected to my network. This includes several cell phones and laptops...
Any idea what could be the cause?? Time to panic?
Go to Solution.
If it’s coming from all your local devices, it’s probably a false alarm.
Your router might see the fragmentated TCP packets on your network as a teardrop attack. If that’s really the case, rebooting your router will probably fix the problem.
