TP: Mgmt Port Under Attack

What does this SMS alert mean?

 

System Log Notification (critical): Management port is under attack: 99.0% bad packets (173981 out of 175216) dropped in the last 60 seconds.

 

When have you seen this occur on your devices?

Hi There

 

Has there ever been an update or resolution to this issue, as i too am continually and intermittently receiving these alerts. They seem to be specific to the 1400N appliances.

We manage the appliances via a virtual SMS appliance, dont remember getting these alerts when we had a physical SMS server, not sure if this has any consequence.

 

Anybody?

Most likely its due to something running vunerability scans on the management port of the device.  Such as Qualys.
