Log says DOS attack from Blu-ray player

I get this in my Orbi router's log about every 20 minutes:

 

[DoS Attack: ARP Attack] from source: 192.168.1.57, Friday, February 23, 2018 14:21:44

 

That LAN address is a Sony UDP-X800 UHD Blu-ray player. I doubt it's attacking my network. No such log entry appeared when I was using an Asus router. What does the Orbi think is happening?

Model: RBK50| Orbi AC3000 High-Performance Tri-Band WiFi System

I updated my Orbis’ firmware and this error message stopped appearing.

Re: Log says DOS attack from Blu-ray player

There's a good possibility that your blue ray player is indeed compromised and the Orbi is just doing its job. You could try unplugging the player for a day or so and then plug back in to see if you get the same message on it's new IP (assuming you're using DHCP and haven't assigned it a static IP). There is a lot of nasty going on in the internet right now.
