I've recently started receiving zone alarm prompts noting that applications are trying to access the trusted zone.
The most common warning are noting that the destination IP is 127.0.0.1:Port ####
I get this everytime with Microsoft messenger. I can see why messenger would need to connect to my loop back adapter address. Please note that the port number varies.
I also receive
warnings that Windows media player is trying to access the trusted zone (127.0.0.1:Port ####). I deny any application accessing the loop back adapter address as it seems suspect. However, it's preventing me from using messenger and other applications.
In the past I've had warnings that
is trying to access the trusted
zone (127.0.0.1:Port ####), as well as prompts about iexplore.exe
trying to access destination IP 127.0.0.1:Port ####
Am I right to
all apps accessing 127.0.0.1, or
should I only worry about
external IP addresses?
Any help with this one would be great.
FYI: I use the free version of zone alarm on my machine.
