[Snort-users] Loopback traffic

I certainly don't know :( where the packets are being generated.  I traced
back to my router the arp table as well, and really what else can I do at
this point.  We are going to call our ISP, and we are going to investigate
adding something for into our routers access list.  Has anyone
ever done that?

Hi log watchers!!!

The big question now is "What is generating these packets?".

Following what we are seeing in the messages, I asked to my snorts to
get layer 2 informations (-e) and at the end I checked the ARP table, so
I discovered that the  "BAD-TRAFFIC loopback traffic" is coming from 
some routers interfaces and by the ttl values I could see that it comes
from some one near.

So, does anybody knows what is generating these packets?
