TCP Sniffer - Can they monitor/break HTTPS
Posted on 2009-02-16
I'm a bit paranoid if people can monitor my passwords from my desktop. I try to make sure no spyware or key loggers are installed (i wish there was a way to detect something like this more reliably) but now I'm wondering if someone connected to the same router / gateway could be sniffing all outgoing TCP requests.
I am logging into HTTPS websites. Is it possible, even though SSL is active, for a foreign person not on my PC though possibly in the same workgroup to monitor my outgoing requests and view my passwords? For example Gmail log in?
