I keep getting a security notification from a 169.254 IP Port 5353. This address is trying to connect to the bonjour service on my machine. Is anyone else getting this? Is there a security issue with bonjour?

Thanks.

    It's looking for shared iTunes playlists. Have you disabled this option in iTunes?

    I am using ITunes 9 and home sharing is turned off. My library is unshared also. The only options I have enabled is remote control using the IPOD remote application.

    From what I've been reading bonjour uses multicast connections, but this looks like someone is using a private IP in the Internet. I blocked it with my firewall.

    Thanks.
