Packet Sniffing
Does anyone if data that's exchanged on a local machine using a loopback IP 127.0.0.1 be packet sniffed if the PC is connected to a network? I'm trying to figure out the loopback is secure enough for exchanging data. We're using these different platforms: Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X and Linux. Thanks!
