njuškanje preglednika

Definition from own experience or research:
Postupak kojim web poslužitelj pokušava otkriti kojim se preglednikom korisnik služi, uglavnom u svrhu prilagođavanja sadržaja web mjesta tom pregledniku.

Example sentence(s):
  • Mrežno orijentirani napadi podrazumijevaju skeniranje vrata (engl. port scanning), IP podvalu (engl. IP spoofing), <b>njuškanje (engl. sniffing)</b>, otimanje sjednica (engl. session hijacking), napade uskraćivanjem usluge (engl. DoS attacks), prelijevanje spremnika (engl. buffer overflow), napad oblikovanim nizom (engl. format string attack), kao i svako drugo iskorištavanje ranjivosti u peracijskom sustavu, aplikaciji i mrežnom protokolu koje seodvija putem mreže. - Luka Drvoderić, Diplomski rad 1750, FER  
  • Njuškanje (sniffing). Haker/napadač specijalnim programima (više o njima u nastavku poglavlja) presreće TCP/IP pakete koji prolaze kroz odreñeno računalo i po potrebu pregleda njihov sadržaj (slika 4.10 i 4.11). - Marin Perko, Diplomski rad, FESB  
  • Ranije ove godine Google je u javno beta testiranje ponudio novu, drugu inačicu svog preglednika, Google Chromea. - Časopis Bug  

Radi se o kombinaciji dva u informatici uobičajena termina. Prilično je prihvaćeno da se "browser" naziva preglednikom (najučestaliji izraz), a "sniffing" IT struka uglavnom izravno prevodi kao njuškanje.
