Definitions for "Packet Sniffing"
An analysis method that monitors network packets (pieces of data) in real time as they make their way to the Web server..
This technique is used to appropriate valid TCP/IP network addresses by reading packets (units of data). Malicious code can then be labeled with the trusted network address and sent through the network unquestioned.
Packet Sniffing is generally a method used to intercept information. Information travels over networks in "packets" -- bundles of information. If the stream is unencrypted then the infromation can simply be observed as it travels from computer to computer through the network.
