Heartbleed does not have anything related to packet sniffing for the exploit to work. It is exploiting an buffer overflow bug which then gain accesses to the server memory. A normal heartbeat request would be like User : request server to reply "Hello" Server: reply "Hello" Now after exploiting the buffer overflow User : request server to reply - part of ...

TLDR: Basically with what you're asking, only ARP broadcasts, unless you subnet your wireless from your wired network. Overall it depends. First, your computer on the ethernet may occasionally send out broadcasts to the whole network. For example, if it needs the MAC address of a machine on the local network, it will send out an ARP broadcast to all ...

Yes. Regardless as to whether or not the victim is hooked up to the router via Ethernet cable or WiFi, it's still connected to the same router - sharing what's obviously known as the same LAN. Being on the same network makes it very easy for the attacker to utilize tools such as BackTrack, a distribution of Linux, to use command line functions, suites, and ...

Most sniffing (sometimes called passive sniffing) happens when I read signals that weren't intended for me. I can read them because you don't shoot your signals to a router like a beam, you just kind of emanate them in all directions and hope the router picks up. The important thing about passive sniffing is that it's undetectable - you can't see or control ...

Use a packet capture tool like Wireshark to search for the password string as it passes over the network. Basically, wireshark makes a copy of all the network packets it can see from the computer it is installed on. You then use various tools and filters to search those captured packets for data you're interested in. Step by step instructions can be easily ...

Assuming your server is a Linux box, run something like tcpdump -i any -s 1600 -w /tmp/dump port 80 on it during a user authentication, and then go digging through /tmp/dump to find the credentials.

There are two options for this currently, the first is to use a software-defined radio that supports the ISM band (at least 2.4 to 2.485 GHz). This will allow you to grab any radio signals within the bluetooth range and will be especially useful if you're trying to identify interfering signals as you'll be able to look at the big picture of the nearby radio ...

If the system runs the sniffer, its interface will be in promiscuous mode. The test works like this: Send a ping with the correct IP address into the network but with a wrong mac address. The sniffing host will answer the ping packet, as it will receive every packet in promiscuous mode. There is a ready-to use script in nmap to support this detection. ...
