RE: Sneaking a peek on Wlan in airports

All,

Tremaine has a point I'd like to tangent from. There are many posts that
come across the list that can be interpreted as actions or events which are
questionable given the scenario. Unless explicitly stated by someone or
obviously illegal, please try to assume that the question or situation is of
a benign nature. We could argue about intentions or likelihood until we're
blue in the face but it generally devolves to flaming or not-so-nice
inferences that I do not want on this list.

Yes, there are script kiddies and unethical behavior in our profession...
But let's focus on the issue at hand and not the motive: You encounter
leaking sensitive data that was not in scope of a job or part of your duties
etc. What should you do?

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

Jasper O Waale
