  arpCounterattack is a program for detecting and remedying "ARP attacks." It
  monitors traffic on any number of Ethernet interfaces and examines ARP replies
  and gratuitous ARP requests. If it notices an ARP reply or gratuitous ARP
  request that is in conflict with its notion of "correct" Ethernet/IP address
  pairs, it logs the attack if logging is enabled, and, if the Ethernet
  interface that the attack was seen on is is configured as being in aggressive
  mode, it sends out a gratuitous ARP request and a gratuitous ARP reply with
  the "correct" Ethernet/IP address pair in an attempt to reset the ARP tables
  of hosts on the local network segment. The corrective gratuitous ARP request
  and corrective gratuitous ARP reply can be sent from an Ethernet interface
  other than the one that the attack was seen on.
