I'm looking to do some packet sniffing on a computer that I do not have privileged access on. I am considering asking the admins to allow users in a specific group access to tcpdump. Specifically, I am thinking about asking them to change the group owner of /usr/sbin/tcpdump to the specific group. https://askubuntu.com/questions/530920/tcpdump-permissions-problem
If access to tcpdump were relaxed, what kinds of impacts to the security of the system would I have to consider?
