url snooper is terminated!
« on: September 01, 2009, 09:40:26 AM »
Hello

I have been known url snooper for few years and yet i have not faced any problem.

but! i just faced one.

i tried to get a video clip from the web.

i runned urlsnooper then click the video clip to play.

as soon as video player(the video doesnt play within web browser) popped up, url snooper was terminated

of coz, the player has noticed that i was running url snooper so it didnt want me to get link for the clip.

so here are the questions

is it possible to run url snooper in stealth mode by itself or by other programs

or is there any other way to get link for the clip and hopefully the video file itself.

(i am sure that the video player has the ability to detect well-known sniffing programs.

so if anyone know not-so-well-known sniffing programs, please let us know..)

i still love url snooper and i will but i want to make this time an exception


thanks

Try doing this: change urlsnooper's executable name to something else. If the video player tries to detect urlsnooper by process name, it won't find it anymore ;)

wouldnt the process name be the same even if i change the exe file name?

whatever the name of the executable name is, process name will be "urlsnooper.exe" in task manager

am i right?

i will try it anyway when i get home



thanks you, jgpaiva

i really appreciate your reply!  ;)

Nope, the process name is the same as the executable name :D

When you try it, tell us if it worked! ;)

i just tried it but still it doenst work.  :(

i changed "UrlSnooper.exe" to "abcd.exe" then i checked in the task manager.

as jgpaiva told me, the process name is as same as the executable name.

i tried to play the clip but again urlsnooper was terminated...even before the video was loaded!

Well, then I can't help much, but I think urlsnooper depends on winpcap (I hope I got the name right). Maybe that's what the video player is terminating, and it might cause urlsnooper to crash.

I think only mouser can give a better insight on this.
