Dr. Frederick B. Cohen says:
Incorrect - you can detect a sniffer - but it's not cheap.

Tell us how, Oh Great One.

It's called a lot of hard work.  You start by examining all hardware
and software, ... you get the idea?  Now if you are proficient, you
can do this for only a few days and a few thousand dollars per typical
room in an office complex, in other words, as much as replacing the
whole computing facility.

There are a number of techniques that require less work but are less
perfect.
