I believe I have an issue here.

I was in e-policy orchestrator and noticed a new group called "WORK" and in that group is a computer...it's IP address is 127.0.0.1, this is odd. This looks like I've been hacked? I mean what's up with that? Is there any kind of logical reason it should be this way? How do I resolve and protect from this happening again and removing the current threat or am I overreacting.

HELP!!!

127.0.0.1 is your local computer. it is a special IP address using for loopback (local access or local diagnosis). you may see the explanation at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loopback

it might be a bit technical for end users, but vendors do use this kind of expression, sometimes.

commonly, it should not be a problem. however, you may check the mcaffee user manual for this.

hope it helps,
