Tool to detect Network Sniffing in your network

March 6th, 2006 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

Received an email and found out that there’s this cool tool that a Microsoft developer got it written to detect network sniffing running on Windows System.

Do you know whether your Windows system is sniffing network traffic off the network without your knowledge?  

This type of passive attack can be very difficult to detect.  There are numerous third party tools that try to detect network sniffers running on the network by looking for signs of systems with network interfaces running in “promiscuous mode.” Since many of these tools use network-based detection techniques that rely on bugs in operating systems and/or specific sniffer behavior, they can generate false positive and false negative results.
