      but you just about cant find a sniffer on your net.  a laptop 
makes a great sniffer.  ethernet in the ceiling?  good.  laptop goes in 
the ceiling space above the tiles and is retrieved a few days later.  the 
men's/women's room ceilings might be particulary good places.  you can 
often get a couple minutes of privacy there.  aint no one going to yell 
if you leave a facility without a computer ;)

or if your ev1l haquer is slightly less enthused, he may merely
forward the output from the sniffer to a point elsewhere on the net,
preferably a fair way away from the target system, and then he
could intercept the sniffer logs at any point he had access to
along the path the data took to get to it's destination.
