Hey all! Ever since moving to Finland and using my apartment's wifi, I've been getting constant notifications from Vipre's Intrusion detection system that reads:
Vipre has detected a network traffic intrusion attempt.
Remote address: 127.0.0.1
Description: Bad traffic loopback traffic
Threat level: medium
I'll get this alert about 3-5 times back to back. Hit "okay," and it'll immediately pop up again. It'll happen about every 25-30 minutes. Does anyone know what this means or is? I went to the website, and it didn't seem to be anything suspicious. Some sort of computer security company. I've run several scans with VIPRE, Roguekiller, and MAlware bytes, but they haven't picked up anything that shouldn't be there.
Even if no one knows the specifics, can someone tell me what loopback traffic even is? I've tried searching on google, but I haven;t really been able to find a specific answer other than it's an intrusion that attempts to redirect you to a black hole
