      A Loopback attack is a method for a malicious bit of software to increase it’s security access by accessing a computer from the network instead of locally. For example, the software may not have the right to write to the C:\ drive on the computer, so instead it will try writing to \\localhost\C$\ to get around this. This is called a loopback attack for obvious reasons.
