Phantom Listeners?

I've been noticing this new phenominon with my stream lately. My low band has been getting a group of listeners all at the exact same time, all with the local IP (127.0.0.1) listed.

While this could be any number of things, the fact that they all start at the exact same time makes it highly suspect.

Anyone have an idea what this could be?

All those listeners are "coming" from you server, the IP 127.0.0.1 is the "loop back" adapter that is internal to all computers. Unless you are listening from the same computer that is serving your stream, then these are spoofed IP's.

Your mileage may vary!
