Eset warning while browsing

Just got this warning from Eset and wondered if it was anything to worry about or whether Eset had actually stopped it.

It is in the log file under personal firewall but it does not say what they did with it.And looks like my IP address.

Would it be best if I turned the firewall security up in the router as it is set to low at the moment.Maybe set it to medium or high or would that cause problems.

This is what is on the log.

05/08/2012 12:24:15 Detected DNS cache poisoning attack 192.168.0.1:53 192.168.0.2:137 UDP

Now not sure if it could have been Virginmedia themselves as they were supposed to fix my e-mail address today that they had deleted.

Appears that it could be Virgin Media. Has you email address been fixed? Personally I would contact them to verify this.

No my e-mail has not been sorted yet.But maybe Eset just stopped it from being sorted.

Thanks for that.Got a bit of a headache just now so will have another look at that later.It does look like it could be part of my IP address but not 100% sure.

Must have been a false positive I think.Just switched back on and it would not connect to wireless.

192.168.0.2:137 UDP would come under my network connection not sure what the :137 UDP is though and whether it should be there.

The first part would come under my wired connection.But not sure about the :53 at the end of it.

Flushed the DNS cache using command prompt but will run the one on your look here as well.

Just still wondering if safe to allow both of those in Eset ,Any opinions.

Port 137 is netbios.

I found this for Comodo but I would imagine it applies to Eset: Click here.

Ok added my 2 IP addresses into Eset without the bits on the end as there was no room for them anyway so will see if I get the same problem again.

Ok Chronus.

I followed Toggie's post and done accordingly.Thanks.

Rebooted and at least the computer still starts ok.

Will have to keep this post in my favorites in case I have to reverse it at any time.

Good Morning, As this is a local address this is "normally" nothing to worry about, sometimes the ESET Personal firewall will detect internal IP traffic from a network peripheral such as a router or printer as a possible threat, I would suggest taking a look at our Knowledge Base here

If you have any concerns at all then please give our technical support a call on 0845 838 0832 option 3, we will be happy to take a look for you.

Many thanks for signing into the Forum and giving advice.

rdave13 already posted your knowledge base and I was working things out on that.

As this computer is working with a wireless connection I assumed that may well have been the problem.It was the 137 UDP at the end of the IP address that I was a bit worried about.

I have added both the wired and wireless connection to the excluded zone so just a matter of seeing if any more problems exist.

So far so good and thanks once again for your response.
