    Trust 127.0.0.1?

    When I'm at the AllMusicGuide website and I click on a page number (or Next) to jump to another page of a multi-page listing, Norton Internet Security 2005 prevents the jump from happening and notifies me that "A computer with the IP address 127.0.0.1 sent information that is characteristic of the HTTP MS IIS Malformed URL DoS attack."

    I understand that 127.0.0.1 is my own PC, but I don't know what I should do to prevent NIS from interfering. I assume that making 127.0.0.1 a "Trusted Zone" isn't the answer or NIS would already be set up that way. Anybody know what to do?

    I'd go for making it a trusted address; it's a loopback address and can't go anywhere other than your own machine.

    What's the link to the page you are trying to view?

    Is it possible Norton doesn't automatically (by default) trust that address because a virus or other nefarious thingy that had managed to install itself on my PC would then be freer to act?

    In answer to your question, here's the AMG link to the first of 5 pages of Rolling Stones songs.

    If I scroll to the bottom and hit 2, 3, 4 or 5 (or "Next page"), Norton steps up to protect me.

    Here's the link to page 4 that Norton won't allow IE to follow.

    I tried your link to page 4 and got the same warning from NIS. Did a Google and came across this info.....

    It really doesn't explain why this would be happening on this particular site, but it explains the error.
