Wireshark Capture

About

I took a deeper look into my network traffic using the network analysis tools Herbivore and Wireshark. At first glance a Wireshark capture looks a little intimidating and unfamiliar, so first task was exporting the capture data as a CSV file and looking at some of the variables in javascript. It didn't tell me too much except that the majority of my packets were using TCP. Herbivore gave a more user friendly view of the route of your internet activity. Looking into unfamiliar domains that popped up in my normal internet use, I saw a few examples of cookies, a mobile safari ad tracking software called Kochava, and most interestingly a url that pointed to a webpage with a single haiku. (Looking up this poem returns a website, Addthis.com, that wants you to download some files to help with your "security"...).
