I installed Outpost a few days ago. About a couple of times every day, it pops up an alert in the system tray, telling me I'm under attack, with the site of the attacker, and type of attack - which so far is either Teardrop attack or Nestea attack. Today it was 192.1689.1.147 (teardrop attack). Isn't that a private IP address?? How is that possible? I'm behind a router, but that's not even an address on my network. Other times, the site was one I was recently or currently on, including that of a software publisher. Doesn't it seem odd a software publisher would be sitting there issuing a DOS attack against me?! Should I presume then that Outpost is giving out false alerts and lying to me? What would make it do that, and is this thing really any better than Kerio?
