    Is there a point to your posts?
    I missed it.
    Also use the edit button if you make a mistake on your posts.
    If you would have read the rules you would know that you are not allowed to post links until you have made 15 posts.
    In the meantime use something ( if needed) like hxxp w w w etc.

    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    The webserver has now way of knowing that you were using a traffic sniffer. Wireshark is 100% passive. It doesn't do anything that can be noticed or observed. (Actually you can set it to resolve hostnames, which results in it sending DNS requests, but still that will have no effect on any webserver you're contacting).

    Maybe the webserver's down.
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    If you were indeed using Wireshark, and they managed to email you about your activities, then I'd suggest it was your browsing of the site that caused the response you got - where would they get your email address from, unless you had registered and the unusual activity was associated with your session?

    If you were doing anything silly like checking input filtering and other "typical" web tests without authorisation, you're lucky to have only had an email from them. I know of one security consultant who got jail time simply for placing one quote in an input field on a website he wasn't authorised to test. (It was, admittedly, a high profile site.)
