IP spoof detected

A few days ago the firewall logs start filling with "IP spoof detected" messages. It's an APIPA address. It's coming from the LAN to the WAN

Any ideas on how to find the faulty machine?

That's the broadcast address for the APIPA subnet. If you can see the source APIPA address from your firewall logs then you could I suppose configure another machine with an APIPA address and try to RDP to the client for example.

You can connect a Fluke or any other packet inspector and check the source APIPA address, it will be linked to a MAC Address. From there, you must check your switches and routers' logs to find the desired computer.
