Fiddlercap - designed to help the non-expert gather HTTP logs (great for helping to track down malware-adverts)
One of the biggest problems I face when tracking down malicious banner advertisements is gathering proof sufficient to convince a web site and/or advertising network that they have a problem. Sometimes I am unable to reproduce a reported hijack by a banner advertisement despite my best efforts. When my correspondent is inexperienced they can struggle to gather the required data for me to analyse and publicise.
Eric Lawrence of Microsoft has also seen the need for a product that will make it easy for the inexperienced to generate an HTTP or HTTPS log, so he has created a simpler version of Fiddler especially to address this need.
Called Fiddlercap, the product can be used to easily take a snapshot of HTTP traffic, which is then sent to a "debugging buddy" (that would be me) :o)
My only question is whether Fiddlercap and Fiddler can be installed side by side. I must ping Eric about that, see what I can find out.
