    Default Bad characters (wingnuts?) in wifizoo and dsniff

    I've been finding bad characters (wingnuts?) in wifizoo and dsniff. With dsniff these come up in Fedora 9 as well as Bt3. Anyone understand why? Perhaps related to Apple-TV? Thanks, Kurt

    operat0r, thanks for your reply.
    When running dsniff -mi eth1 I get some of these oddities in my results. They appear, not at first, but after running dsniff for a day or so. The only thing it seems to pick up is my neighbour's (we are sharing the router) apple-tv. Wifizoo also will pick it up, this is a cordless phone, (I think);
    "NX�����1� Giga'" also, a router;
    "@`!���d�1�lgmho"
    These are given as the names of two APs, GigasetFFB and lgmhome.
    These and another are towards the bottom of the SSIDS (AP) List. The results in my first post are from near the end of a dsniff run. I thought I had saved some of these files onto my hard drive,but can't find them. The dsniff in particular, had a lot of them. I haven't seen these in wireshark.
    Not a big deal, really, I just wanted to know what our router is up to, if anyone can tell me what the heck these are, I'm still curious, thanks. Kurt
    Scapy? O.K. I will check it out

    By wingnuts I was thinking of dingbats, silly me!
