"An international team of scientists from the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) is investigating mysterious signal spikes emitting from a 6.3-billion-year-old star in the constellation Hercules—95 light years away from Earth. The implications are extraordinary and point to the possibility of a civilization far more advanced than our own."
Fascinating stuff, It'll be very interesting to see if they discover anything.

Yeah the odds are pretty low. Like Matt said, even if the signal isn't confirmed to have originated from Earth yet, it probably isn't Aliens. Statistically speaking. Even if it was, the distance to that solar system means any signals we could receive, or send has like a 190 year return time.
But Tabby's Star remains a solid candidate, I don't know If I've mentioned it before, but some scientists actually Kickstarted funding to ensure 1 full year of constant overwatch on that system.
