A sniffing (szimatolás) nem más, mint a hálózaton zajló információáramlás folyamatos nyomon követése, vagyis a hálózat felderítése. A browser magyarul böngésző.

Example sentence(s):
  • Hálózati támadástípusok (...) Adatszivárgás. Phising (adathalászat). Betárcsázás. Social Engineering. Jelszótörés. Szimatolás. Szimatolás típusok. (...) - NetAcademia  
  • A szimatolás kifizetõdik, a munkaadónknak is, a szoftveríróknak azonban feltétlenül: a megfigyelés ára 50 és 70 euró között változik. -  
  • Ha a szó angol jelentését megkeressük, akkor minden világos lesz: sniff = szippantás, szimatolás (Itt most nem arra kell gondolni, hogy ha használjuk, akkor jól megszippantjuk, inkább koncentráljunk a második jelentésre, azaz szimatolás.) A snifferek olyan programok (de lehet hardware is), amelyekkel a hálózaton folyó forgalomba szimatolhatunk bele. - Hacker's Guide
