The only thing that bothers me is that I didnt want syslogd to listen on its
UDP port, but i guess I will just check the address of the incoming packets
against the loopback address. (Didn't try that yet, thougth.)
Packets can be made to show up on your ethernet port with 127.0.0.1 as the
source and destination.
Though I guess if you make sure that the packets have loopback for both
source and destination, and make sure that there are no source-routing
options, then either spoofed packets have from systems on the local LAN, or
your routers have been hacked.
