Sniffers that operate in the non-promiscuous mode can capture data from the network that is addressed to or sent from the sniffer's machine. Promiscuous mode allows a network adapter to capture any network traffic data, independent of the destination address, that passes across the network.

Active and passive sniffing are the two types of sniffing. Spoofing assaults, DHCP attacks, and DNS poisoning are examples of active sniffing tactics. Passive sniffing entails merely listening and is typically used in networks with hubs. The traffic is visible to all hosts in this form of network.

In a Shared Ethernet context, sniffing is completely passive, making it incredibly difficult to detect. The gather packets mode does not operate. As a result, even many seasoned System Administrators believe that switched networks are completely safe and impervious to sniffer.
