@ -67,3 +67,8 @@ give the administrative users permission to read but not write the BPF
devices, you can have the script change the owner to that user, the
group to "admin", and the permissions to rw-r-----. Other possibilities
are left as an exercise for the reader.
(NOTE: due to a bug in Snow Leopard, if you change the permissions not
to grant write permission to everybody who should be allowed to capture
traffic, non-root users who cannot open the BPF devices for writing will
not be able to capture outgoing packets.)
