Running XP Home/SP2.

In the last week or so, an entry has started to appear in ZoneAlarm's [Privacy/Tab:Site List]. There's nothing in ZA's Entry Detail panel as to what Loopback is or what put it there.

Can anyone throw any light on this?

Much appreciated :)

If its the same as whats under or maybe under the firewall / zones tab (loopback adapter), this is localhost. 127.0.0.1.

Thanks Speedy Gonzales.

Can't see any references to Loopback anywhere in ZA. And why would this appear recently and not before? Been running for years without ever seeing it :rolleyes:

Hmm a program may have changed / added it not sure.

Like I use Adsubtract, which uses localhost as a proxy server.

This may have added it in ZA on these.
