Starting a sniffer by error is pretty unlikely.


Starting a sniffer and then closing your laptop after having forgotten about it, that's not unlikely.

Jasper,

You don´t run a sniffer by error, so stay away from doing this again.

Asunto: Sneaking a peek on Wlan in airports

I'm sure you as I have many time been in airport with public wlan access and
by error had some kind of sniffer running ?

well I has Cain open because of a general scan I was making related to a test, and I picked up a Pop3 account and password, I did try to find the guy to tell him but did not see anybody with a laptop, so what now do I email him as asking him to update the password or do I just ignore it and let he
carry on doing this to him self and his firm.

Regards
