Watch the Wi-Fi around you

There is a new type of network sniffer that will let you see what images other Wi-Fi users are downloading around you.

It is a easy way to display whats happening on your network or what websites people are visiting at a conference or public hotspot.

This is also a great way to demonstrate the dangers of a unsecured wireless network to a less technical audience like upper management.

These programs will work on any non switched wired network also.

There are several programs available:

For Windows there is etherwatch

For Linux there is driftnet

And for the Mac there is etherpeg
