Sniffer is a registered trademark of Network Associates, Inc although it has come to identify a whole class of products that can capture network transmissions and encode the information in those packets into evidence files. BlackICE uses Sniffer-style files for evidence capture.
A program which collects/displays all data packets passing through an ethernet device on a LAN. Sniffing is accomplished by setting the device to promiscuous mode, which enables it to listen to all packets, not just the ones destined for it.
A program and/or device that monitors data traveling over a network. Sniffers can be used both for legitimate network management functions and for stealing information off a network. Unauthorized sniffers can be extremely dangerous to a network's security because they are virtually impossible to detect and can be inserted almost anywhere. This makes them a favorite weapon in the hacker's arsenal. On TCP/IP networks, where they sniff packets, they're often called packet sniffers.
