Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2023-de10e674ae
2023-04-28 02:22:23.220524
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name : libpcap
Product : Fedora 36
Version : 1.10.4
Release : 1.fc36
URL :   https://www.tcpdump.org/
Summary : A system-independent interface for user-level packet capture
Description :
Libpcap provides a portable framework for low-level network
monitoring. Libpcap can provide network statistics collection,
security monitoring and network debugging. Since almost every system
vendor provides a different interface for packet capture, the libpcap
authors created this system-independent API to ease in porting and to
alleviate the need for several system-dependent packet capture modules
in each application.

Install libpcap if you need to do low-level network traffic monitoring
on your network.
