Black Ice attacking nothing after stealth hack [KNOWN ISSUE]

So I was doing a quick stealth hack, and everything seemed normal, but when it went to brute-force mode, the Black Ice started playing it's attack animation and sound. This has not happened to me before now.
Here is the replay share link: https://link.hackersthegame.com/view_re ... =996&s=448
I couldn't attach the screenshot that I took because the file size was too big, but I hope that the replay is enough.

Hi. This will happen anytime a Black ICE node is attached to a netConnection, as they are considered "captured" to allow players to install programs on them. Since they don't have a Firewall value however, netConnections can't be recaptured by the network, resulting in the Black ICE attempting (and failing) to fire.
