Description Robert Scheck 2007-11-26 14:16:03 UTC
Spec URL: http://labs.linuxnetz.de/bugzilla/dsniff.spec
SRPM URL: http://labs.linuxnetz.de/bugzilla/dsniff-2.4-0.1.b1.src.rpm
Description: A collection of tools for network auditing and penetration
testing. Dsniff, filesnarf, mailsnarf, msgsnarf, urlsnarf and webspy allow
to passively monitor a network for interesting data (passwords, e-mail,
files). Arpspoof, dnsspoof and macof facilitate the interception of network 
traffic normally unavailable to an attacker (e.g, due to layer-2 switching). 
Sshmitm and webmitm implement active monkey-in-the-middle attacks against 
redirected SSH and HTTPS sessions by exploiting weak bindings in ad-hoc PKI.

Comment 1 Patrice Dumas 2007-11-28 09:01:43 UTC
I personally don't like very much adding new features as patches,
like the patch pcap_read_dump does, but it is not a blocker.

Shouln't dsniff.magic be %config and not %config(noreplace)?

If you want to keep the man pages timestamps (not a must), you 
can try adding INSTALL='install -p' or similar on the make install line.

I suggest using %defattr(-,root,root,-) instead of %defattr(-,root,root)

Regarding the license, remote.c base64.c looks more MIT to me than BSD, 
and magic.c is under a license I have never seen before. It may be argued
that dsniff isn't fully compliant with this license since the name of some
authors doesn't seems to be in the documentation as asked for. However
no authors really appears in the documentation since there is no AUTHORS
or CREDITS file. Not a blocker, but may be worth reporting upstream,
though looks like upstream is dead, so reporting to debian could be 

Please take those comments into account when you feel they are
relevant, but these are not blockers.

* rpmlint is silent
* follow packaging and naming guidelines
* free software license. An author of one file who ask for being in the 
  documentation isn't mentioned in this documentation, but no author
  is mentioned in the documentation
* match upstream
