According to http://ipduh.com/ipv6/?fe80::98ce:957d:9326:4c49, it's a Local Unicast IPV6 IP Address.  A Local Unicast address is strictly an internal IP address. Routers will not forward such an address. (http://www.ipuptime.net/LinkLocal.aspx).

It would appear that you are trying to hack your own computer.  Or perhaps you already have some sort of malware on your local network that is trying to hack your computer.

In any case, it's internal to your network.

Yes, it is IPV6.  See Local addresses on this page:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPv6_address#Special_addresses   Check your own computer to see it belongs to it / you.  The IPV6 address of my computer is fe80::215:f2ff:fee5:931%4
