MAC Attack Warning on Home WiFi, Using EERO Mesh Network

I set up an EERO WiFi Mesh network in my home, Two EERO Beacons and an EERO units. No Issues, worked great, need a little more coverage so I installed a second EERO into the mesh network.  Immediately Norton mobile on my phone popped up with "Compromised Network"  with an extended comment that an outside attacker is trying to connect a MAC address using a valid IP Address.  I can remove the additional EERO and it stops.  I contacted EERO support, they don't see this issue.  Is there a way to see what MAC address Norton is referring to so I can check my system to see if the app is just seeing one of the connected devices?  Any idea how to validate to correct this issue?



Re: MAC Attack Warning on Home WiFi, Using EERO Mesh Network

This detection type is a new feature of the latest version of Norton Mobile Security. There seems to be some teething problems with it. Maybe you can add your comments to this thread where other users have already had a Norton employee looking into their issue. https://community.norton.com/en/forums/network-comprimised

As an aside. As you know what is causing the issue, when the message comes up, you can tap on the three dots at the top right, and then tap on Ignore for Now. 

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
