I guess developers of UrlSnooper are aware of the following information but, if not, here it is :

WinPcap's version installed with UrlSnooper 2.20.01 is version 4.01beta. It appears that WinPcap v.4.01 has a security issue. I don't know if this issue includes v.4.01beta, but whatever, here are the links :

1- Security flaw concerning WinPcap v.4.01 : http://www.heise-security.co.uk/news/98879
2- Availability of WinPcap v.4.02 : http://www.winpcap.org/install/default.htm

Bye for now smiley

Thanks for the tip, I will upgrade url snooper to use the newly release 4.02.

I'll post the text about the security issue -- it seems its pretty minor, it related to the ability of *local* users on your pc which might not have administrative accounts being able to perform administrative actions:

In a security advisory, security service provider iDefense has warned of a vulnerability in a device driver within the open source WinPcap library that local users could exploit to escalate their privileges.

Regardless, I have something else to upgrade with url snooper anyway so expect a new version in the next couple of days.
