    Router Log: Storm Dos attacks from my own computer?


    In my Netgear router logs, its showing '[DoS attack: STORM] attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [10.0.0.2], Monday, Jan 06,2014 00:50:55' many times over and over about every 20 seconds, which is coming from my computer, I am almost 100% positive I got no malware/viruses on my computer, anyone know why this is happening?

    Are you actually sure that, that is your PCs IP address?

    Is your router a Netgear DG834GU V5 by any chance? , 10.0.0.2 is the default IP adress of that particular Netgear router.
