PC behind firewall yet livesafe reports intrusions, how?

So a pc with livesafe is behind a firewall, yet its reporting in the PCSecurity, History, a list of ip addresses that are supposed to have sent suspicious packets to the computer. These IP addresses are not RFC or bogon networks, so I'm intrigued how its able to access my firewall and get this information, when its not got the password to access it?

Is this data fake but designed to make me feel reassured or does McAfee have some agreement in place to communicate with the firewall manufacturer and pull this data from the firewall?

At the moment this is the only PC on the network so there is nothing else to send network packets other than the firewall.
