Good to know that malicious things are always on the other side of the router. I must be hallucinating when I encounter pwned boxes with sniffers running inside of a network. Everyone restricts MAC addresses at their switches. Nobody is vulnerable to cable taps, wireless sniffing, ICMP redirects, or any other trickery. Sarcasm aside, I don't think being shielded from the outside makes that much difference. It's foolish to assume that a corporate intranet is squeaky clean.
