DOS attacks on iCloud on Windows 10


I have notice that after installing iCloud on Windows 10, I seem to be getting almost a denial-of-service attack from their servers with these incorrect frame check sequence packets hitting my machine at high frequency.

I first noticed it because I was having trouble with streaming media hanging and pausing while the buffers were struggling to fill themselves up with data.

As soon as I kill the iCloud drive client, the 'attack' (so to speak) goes away.
