I installed a firmware update on our cam-pan today. Immediately after my system went crazy alerting me of DDoS from 22.214.171.124. I searched and found an earlier similar post, but the address was different and identified as legit.
I checked this address with Whois and it is managed from Quebec, Canada. Anyone else with a similar experience? Anyone who can identify the address as legit?
Welcome to the forum @necochino
Not sure what your monitoring utility is and if you are getting a false positive (nor am I monitoring for this), but, I would suggest reaching out to Wyze in case there is an issue with as many details as you can provide.
By definition you can’t get a “DDoS” attack from a single IP address.
I find these router based security warnings amusing.
The Wyzecams have often issued too many DNS queries and that traffic might explain your error. But it’s probably just the P2P servers trying to maintain a connection to your camera. Either way it’s actually pretty "normal*. As you’ve seen there are tons of threads about it. Here’s just one that mentions the same OVH hosting.
Yeah I knew Defender was trash so I didn’t install it as they suggest. It’s a new router with a Netgear Armor trial that’s throwing the alerts. I had read that this router throws some false positives and had actually seen them in the log, but nothing like what Armor was doing with that one cam. Let me see if I can get some of the addresses for you, brb.
