    Description: Network exploration tool to Intercept packets on a switched LAN

    From the MAN page:
    Arpspoof redirects packets from a target host (or all hosts) on the LAN intended for another host on the LAN by forging ARP replies. This is an extremely effective way of sniffing traffic on a switch.

    Kernel IP forwarding (or a userland program which accomplishes the same, e.g. fragrouter(8)) must be turned on ahead of time.
    This command line tool uses gratuitous ARP replies to change the normal flow of traffic. The attacker attempts to inject the attacking machine between the victim and the gateway implementing a man-in-the-middle attack.
