Blocking SelfishNet application

is there any possible way to Block running SelfishNet application  and Similar applicaion (Netcut ...etc) on my FG100d device ??

i want to block it to maintain a stable state of my lan  Pc's   !??

As SelfishNet and Netcut use ARP cache poisoning there is not much a firewall can do. ARP is a Layer 2 protocol so the firewall (as a router) is not involved.

The only remedy seems to install a static ARP entry for the gateway, e.g.  in Windows

arp -s <IP address of gw> <MAC address of gw>


beside tools like arpwatch which could alert you to changes of IP/MAC pairs.
