Sniffing in hacking is the monitoring and deriving of every packet that goes through a specific network. This process is achieved by making use of sniffing tools. Sniffing of information can take place in Web traffic, router configuration, chat sessions, email and DNS traffic, FTP and Telnet password. Sniffing in hacking can also be described as tapping telephone wires in order to know or hear a conversation. This is broadly known as wiretapping. With sniffing, you can see both the protected and unprotected traffic. An individual working in an organization can sniff all the traffic of the network in the physical location.
