OK, everybody put on your nerd glasses because this week we take a look at Packet Sniffers (also known as protocol analyzers).

If you don't know what a Packet Sniffer is or why you should care about them, don't worry because in this week's feature article: What is a Packet Sniffer? we're going to tell you everything you need to know including how to detect if someone is using one on your network and what you can do to protect yourself against sniffer-using eavesdropping hackers.

Have you ever used a sniffer before. Let us know your experience in the comments section below:
