Has anyone used Wireshark for networking purposes? I see that a search of google brings up an app called Wireshark Antiviurs as malware. Just want to make sure that the Wireshark program itself isn't a virus/malware, etc...

I've used it once or twice before and am considering putting it on my PC to do networking stuff...

I've used wireshark for network packet analysis. I've never had a problem with it, and I believe it is open source.

Are you going to http://www.wireshark.org/download.html ? Wireshark is a great program, not sure what wireshark antiviurs is, sounds fishy to me. Just download from www.wireshark.org

yeah, that's the address that i was going to use. We use it at the college where i work for some classes and for maintenance/troubleshooting, etc, but just wanted to make sure there wasn't any kind of potential malware or adware that's included that could harm the computer. I agree, it's a great program, but just wanted to make sure before I put it on my home computers.
