    I also get this notification from time to time. Based on the analysis of a Wireshark log we came to the conclusion that it's not a false positive but actually a sort of attack, even though not caused intentionally by an attacker, another person or malicious software. If you'd like me to confirm that the alert is ok, create a Wireshark log with the network communication captured while the attack is being generated / detected, compress it along your Firewall log exported to a text file, upload the archive somewhere and PM me the download link.
