a hash with all the ip/mac couples to be found on the local segment ... mac/ip couple is selected ... ARP replies are sent
If the switch learns from the faux replies, it may begin to forward you the traffic intended for that address. In effect, you're DoS'ing the innocent bystander.

Other hosts on the network are your peers. One needs administrative control (of the networking equipment) to choke ports or enforce policies. Also, as far as layer 2 protocol is concerned, the "attacker" here is a well-behaving host.

I encourage everyone to contemplate on the philosophy of the well-known Part 15 of FCC rules:

1) This device may not cause harmful interference.
2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
