Mcafee Rogue Detection System Unknown IP Address

Hello Community,

  I'm looking to track down an issue we're having with unknown rogue ip addresses reported by the Mcafee Rogue Detection System.

  We are running only public addresses on our network yet we get rogue ip addresses.  The report associates the "10.x.x.x address" to a sensor of one of our hosts with a public static address.

  Thinking this is some kind of virus when we shut down the device the issue shows up on a second workstation on our network.

  We've run virus scans and checked for virtual NICs, but can't figure out what is causing the activity.  In addition to the private address we're also seeing one public address that doesn't belong to our network reported in a separate subnet.

  Our boundary FW doesn't detect either of these IP address and they seem to be only reported by McAfee.


Any idea what this can be and how to deal with it?

UPDATE:  The public address has been accounted for.  The system is managed from off site and the rogue ip address is part of their maintenance team logging in through a tunnel.

  The devices affected by the private address are not associated with any off site team or tunnel, but we are still looking.
