Name        : dsniff
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 2.4
Release     : 0.9.b1.fc13
URL         : http://www.monkey.org/~dugsong/dsniff/
Summary     : Tools for network auditing and penetration testing
Description :
A collection of tools for network auditing and penetration testing. Dsniff,
filesnarf, mailsnarf, msgsnarf, urlsnarf and webspy allow to passively monitor
a network for interesting data (passwords, e-mail, files). Arpspoof, dnsspoof
and macof facilitate the interception of network traffic normally unavailable
to an attacker (e.g, due to layer-2 switching). Sshmitm and webmitm implement
active monkey-in-the-middle attacks against redirected SSH and HTTPS sessions
by exploiting weak bindings in ad-hoc PKI.
