Greetings and hello everyone!

I still new in networking stuff here, but i wish there's a way out.
Let's assume this Yahoo Messenger (YM) is running in my pc.
And I want to obtain the chat between this YM towards the ppl.

Would that be possible by any means in Java?
I was thinking that this could be used by analyzing each packet
received from the TCP Network towards my pc. But, if that's the only case
It means troublesome. because I need to sniff all the packets received, eventough the aim is just
get the chat obtained (saved / recorded)....

is there anyone have ever deal with it?
~ I need guidance.

I fear so. And to be honest, I'm also glad about it. Imagine you can write a simple tool that allows you to monitor all incoming and outgoing traffic. Malware creators would love that. If they are even able to modify that traffic... I'm glad it's not that easy.

i found out ppl are doing that as well,
i mean walking through the incoming http response.

But that's for http protocol, and not yahoo protocol. Well, i'm sure from what
google give information is that, the protocol might be not open source discussed.

Means, we need a way out to parse it out.
Oooo Rob Prime, do you have some info about it?

I can't imagine if this is gonna be simple.
And also doing monitoring incoming traffic is gonna be big task to do yowww...
I noticed from jpcap.



ooo... ppl come and discuss here, come come.

Please use real words when posting to the forums. Abbreviations such as "ppl" in place of "people" (I guess) only serve to make your posts more difficult to read and less likely to generate useful responses.
