Why would my network & firewall change suddenly, & w/o explanation
I was going through log files, and found on several occasions an entry that said something like
"You created firewall rules to manage how Service and Controller applications access your network"
"firewall configuration updated: 99 rules"
"Protecting your connection to a newly detected network on adapter "Software Loopback
Interface 1. (IP Address: 127.0.0.0)
and below it:
"Protecting you connection to newly detected network on adapter
"Intel(R) 82578DC Gigabyte Network Connection.
(IP Address: 169.154.xxx.xxx)
Which is the ip address I would normally see as being mine if it was detected from the network I connect to via broadband, and I didn't change ANY firewall rules, and all of the above entries have exactly the same time stamps. Is this an indication of an intrusion or Virus?
