Program Description ########## AIM Sniff is a utility for monitoring and archiving AOL Instant Messenger messages across a network. You can either 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. Also part of AIM Sniff is smbInfo.pl which is used to match IM handles with NT domain user names. This portion of the project is probably still a bit buggy or lacking error checking. Another part of AIM Sniff will be a web page front end to view and generate reports of captured AIM conversations. This will include the ability to see all conversations from an IP address, AIM handle, NT Username, conversations between certain time periods. It will allow administrators to see how often users are chatting to monitor for abuse. You can also use AIM Sniff to monitor for cases of harassment or warez trading. SWITCHES: -C=filename <-Get AIM Sniff options from a config file -r=filename <-Read a PCAP file instead of doing a live capture -c=integer <-The number of packets to read before quitting -d=dev <-The device to capture packets from -f='filter string' <-String to filter on enclosed in single quotes (DEFAULT: 'tcp and port 5190') -- Should only have to be specified if you think AIM is running on a different port -p <-Place the device into promiscuous mode -to=integer <-Read timeout in ms --SMB <-Turn SMB lookups 'on' to get NT domain usernames with AIM logins, Off by default --nodb <-Do not dump to a DB, only dump to STDOUT --quiet <-Do not print anything but errors to STDOUT --getHandles <-Do not do anything with PCAP but populate the fromHandle field in the logs table (Can be used with -C above) ########## 3. Sample Config File ########## dumpfile=/home/aimsniff/aim.dump packetCount=10 dev=eth0 filter='tcp and port 5190' promisc=1 timeout=1000 SMB=1 nodb=1 quiet=1 host=mysql.server.com user=aimuser password=password ########## 4. Dependencies ########## Requires Samba to perform SMB lookup features. Requires the following perl modules: Net::Pcap NetPacket::Ethernet NetPacket::IP NetPacket::TCP Unicode::String DBI DBD::mysql ########## 5. Installation Procedure ########## First, install the above dependencies and run 'aimSniff.pl --nodb' to make sure you have all the necessary dependencies. If you plan to use the database dump feature, you'll have to load the table.struct file into mysql. To do this run the following command 'mysql < table.struct'. This will create a database named "aim" with all the right tables. Now you can create a user that has rights to this database by running mysql and issuing: 'GRANT ALL ON aim.* TO username@hostname IDENTIFIED BY 'password';' For more info on granting access to a user see the MySQL documentation. After all this, you should modify the aimSniff.pl file to reflect your database information or edit the config file. You can run 'aimsniff.pl -h' to see a list of switches and options. Included in this version is a very very basic web CGI (perl) script that will give you a basic over view of the data AIM Sniff has captured in a database. This web script will now be my main focus in developing AIM Sniff. Enjoy and happy sniffing.
