My antivirus programs report Sonos as source of "ARP Chache Poisoning" attacks in my network

Hi,
as described in headline, antivirus programs are reporting some "computer" in my network as a source of ARP Chache Poisoning. When I checked local IP of that "computer", I found out that it's my Sonos CONNECT. For a few years everything was ok, this problem appeared just recently.

Does anybody know some solution how to solve this problem?

Thank you and have a nice day

Call Sonos on their telephone support line would be my advice.
You should investigate, but the fact that the IP address is a private IP on your own network may mean it is really a rather random false alarm. Please see this link:

It will be nothing specific to Sonos that has caused this to arise.
