Re: switched n/w

it is possible by a sort of arp-attack ("man-in-the-middle"...)
for example ettercap could do such a job...
there a some programs to detect (and prevent?) such attacks like arp-watchdog, but the best way after my knowledge is a switch with managment-function/arp-control-options.

   Iam a bit new to network securities.We have a switched network and to
my knowledge a hosts' data cannot be sniffed by other host by runnning
tcpdump.But Iam receiving complaints from few users that their data is
being changed/manipulated.Is this possible?
How can I avoid this at the host level?Does this mean the server has
been compromised?Any help or pointer in this aspect would be highly

thanks in advance.
