~~Please keep traffic on list~~

You are trying to sniff traffic to yourself.  So technically, yes, that alert is correct :)

You may want to try attacking from a different box, so the traffic crosses the network.

Are you running the exploit against the machine you are trying to infect?  (i.e. the same box?)

 I've downloaded a trojan on ubuntu 12.04  and accessed its shell from backtrack using metasploit. The thing is that all the alerts received from snort were about  BAD-TRAFFIC loopback traffic and nothing more.Is there something wrong with my configuration? shouldn't snort detect this kind of exploits?
Is there any additional predefined rules for snort IPS that drop packets ?

would appreciate any kind of help.
