404 Posted December 3, 2006 Share Posted December 3, 2006 I have a question about sniffing wireless traffic and I haven't really figured out one thing, despite reading manuals and howto's online. Can you sniff for certain strings (like plain text POP passwords, for instance with dsniff or tcpdump) directly on the packets you pick up, without actually being on the network? As far as I understand, these various sniffing tools recquire you to to connect to the network, which would mean you're not passively sniffing anymore and gave up your stealth. Edit: I'm talking about traffic on non-WEP/WAP protected networks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
