Model: OC200   ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.30

Starting a few days ago, I have been receiving many, "Router/Gateway detected TCP no-Flag attack and dropped x packets" warnings.  Yesterday, I received (33).  As of 10:13 today, I've received (15).  I don't know where these errors are coming from and do not know why they started recently after many months of no occurrences.  

 

My full list of Omada equipment is in my signature.  Any suggestions are welcome.

I can confirm that I have the same in the log on two different sites with ER605v1, it appeared on both sites when I upgraded to the latest firmware.
I only have two sites with ER605v1 so it's a bit strange, I don't know if it's a real attack or a bug.

Same thing happening here. Started April 29, but only four times from then until May 27. On May 27, I started getting them about once every half hour. I'll follow this thread. Hopefully, someone finds the cause and resolution.

  @Wild-Wanderer I went back through my logs and found that my TCP no-Flag attacks started with multiple events daily on 27 May too. As an aside, I installed TL-R605 firmware v1.3.0 Build 20230511 on 17 May.  So, in my case anyway, it doesn't seem to have a direct correlation with the increase in the TCP no-Flag attacks.  in fact, I installed a pre-release version (v1.3.0 Build 20230424) on 28 April too.

Agreed. I just installed v1.3.0 today (29 May).

  @lflorack 

The router currently does not support finding the source IP

so there isn't much you can do with it. it just detects and block TCP no-flag attack if that connection fits the rules. 

i don't think you should worry about it. if that bothers you, you can edit your log system.

 

if you want to know what is no-flag attack or should I worry about it? you need some lessons on TCP handshake and understand how internet works.

no big deal as long as your internet is find and stable when these occur. 

if you encounter an unstable network, and these alerts pop up at the same time, you need to consider if your IP is exposed/leaked during day to day net surfing. someone's attacking you. to fix this, sometimes you need help from your isp instead of the router. router can block but it increases the burden and potentially causes performance issues.

  @sl9999 

Can i do something about this beside of being worried?

I added Starlink as second ISP to my ER605. I think the warnings started around that time.

Any help is welcome.
