Bye bye ethereal — hello wireshark



Ethereal has quite a reputation for itself, I’ve used it in analyzing traffic on the home network and experimenting with virtual images… anyway, it’s a packet sniffer and network protocol analyzer and it now has a new name and new home…. wireshark.org. Apparently the lead developer did not own the rights to the name ethereal and is transfering to a new job, the old company keeps the ethereal name. He said in the explanation that he is NOT going through a namechange like that again for the project and is in the process of trademarking and will ask for input shortly as to how the development team wants to hold the trademark.


It is a pretty amazing (and scary) program. This is the kind of program that reminds you why some people are so paranoid about data being sent “in the clear”.
