client IP address has been spoofed.

--
Attack Scenarios:
This Trojan may be delivered to the target in a number of ways. This
event is indicative of an existing infection being activated. Initial
compromise may be due to the exploitation of another vulnerability and 
the attacker is leaving another way into the machine for further use.

--
Ease of Attack:
This is Trojan activity, the target machine may already be compromised.

--
False Positives:
