AIM Sniff is a utility for monitoring and archiving AIM and MSN messages across a network. It can be used to monitor for cases of harassment or warez trading. It has the ability to do a live dump (actively sniff the network) or read a PCAP file and parse the file for IM messages. You also have the option of dumping the information to a MySQL database or STDOUT. AIM Sniff will also monitor for an IM login and then perform an SMB lookup on the originating computer in order to match NT Domain names with IM login names (handles).

Release Notes: Several bugfixes from the alpha release are included, as well as a few feature enhancements. Daemon mode is now working, and there is a feature to not use a handles file (useful when using the software behind a NAT). In addition, the install will prompt for MySQL admin credentials for creating the database. Issues with the MSN message types crashing the DB and connections to the DB timing out after a period of time have been fixed. Also fixed is "noise" from database SQL statements.
