Why is dropped outbound traffic counted in "intrusion attempts" ?

Is it just me or is this strange ?

Traffic that is outbound dropped is counted in the Intrusion attempts of the firewall mainscreen.
I’d think of Intrusions as coming FROM the internet ?

(3.0.25 - x32).

Really, ‘Intrusions Attemps’ is a bad name, as it shows blocked TRAFFIC and not blocked INTRUSIONS.
