Teredo Tunneling Pseudo Interface Message in Security History?

Hi,

Everytime I check my security history I keep getting the following message 'Protecting your connection to a newly detected network on adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo Interface.........IP address'.

 

Can anyone tell me what this is?

 

Plus, everytime I log in I get Unauthorised access logged - the details are logged to Spyware Dr and the risk is medium? I run both Norton and Spyware Dr - do they conflict?

Hi MadHatter56,

 

Welcome to Norton Community!

 

The message regarding the teredo tunnelling is discussed in the following thread, hope this helps you to understand why it happens:

http://community.norton.com/t5/Norton-Internet-Security-Norton/Teredo-Tunneling-Pseudo-Interface-pro...

 

During it's functioning, Spyware doctor may try to access ccsvchst.exe file from Norton program at different occasions.Here the Norton Product Tamper Protection in Norton program logged it as an unauthorized access as the target is a Symantec file. Norton Product Tamper Protection will block any processes or services that attempt to access or change Norton files. Here the access is Logged, not blocked. Logged, however, does a bit more than simply logging the event. The actor is allowed to do whatever it was trying (open a thread or process for example) but with its access rights reduced so that it can't tamper with the Symantec resource.

 

I think, this is a normal behaviour and don't see anything that could compromise the security in your computer.

Hi Yogesh,

Thanks for the answer. Looked at the thread and can you explain IPV6 - I am do not know what this is?

 

You have made me feel more confident that nothing is trying to hack into my computer!

 

Thanks.
