Security messaging

Today my Synology Disk Station started telling me that it was blocking someone who was trying to brute force my admin account. It is not going to work. My admin account is disabled and has been since before the device was internet accessible, and probably will not be re-enabled unless it is needed by Synology support.

The problem is that the disk station is telling me it is being attacked and blocking it.

Do I want to know about an attack with no chance of success? and that the device knows has no chance of success at the moment.
