    Can someone tell me exactly what this means? I was connected to a motels wi-fi when ESET popped up this notice a few times. All scans come up clean and have done some research on the notice, but do not fully understand what it means. I googled the IP addy associated with the notice, but it wasn't much help. One result said Comcast in Wisconsin and another said it was in New Jersey. Thanks for any help.

    If you've done some research on DNS cache poisoning attacks and how they work, you may see how some traffic sent by your router or network card might cause a possible detection alert. If data is being sent in a non-standard way or perhaps the router is pinging the computer to verify it's still there, or a number of other possible reasons, this could trigger a detection alert by ESET.

    The easiest way to resolve this is to simply follow the KB Article below:
