    ferret makes huge .pcap files

    Hi all, after migrating to new hardware and to Kali instead of BT5, i managed that ferret sidejack tool began to reproduced a real huge pcap files (Gigabytes after some opened pages).
    as i can see in hex, ferret dumps crazy amount of zeros.
    the same problem appeared with two different wifi adapters

    08:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (rev c4)
    Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
    07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 05)
    Kernel driver in use: r8169
    any ideas?
    ps. sorry for my poor english

    ok, so i made a little ugly fix to be able to use hamster.
    idea is to use tcpdump for sniffing and ferret in the file mode for generating hamster.txt log file.
    just put to the hamster dir and execute it manually when launching hamster: ./ wlan0
    (and do not set interface in the hamster setting, because it will launch ferret in interface mode)
    tcpdump -i $1 -w tcpdump.pcap &
    while true
        sleep 4
        ferret -r tcpdump.pcap --hamster
