Summary0000289: Ferret dumpfile is corrupted

The capture file is massive (eg 1GB per minute). This is 10x more than BT5 ferret.

Reading with ferret:
No valid packet found in chunk
/root/Desktop/sniff-2013-04-21-eth.pcap(0): corruption found at 0x62176000 (1645699072)

Reading the same file from tcpdump:
tcpdump: pcap_loop: bogus savefile header

The capture file appears to be damaged or corrupt.
(pcap: File has 484846-byte packet, bigger than maximum of 65535)

Steps To Reproduce

ferret -i wlan0
ferret -r /dumpfile

Ferret has had issues before on 64bit and it clearly has them again. Please report this to the developer's bug tracker:

In the meantime, amd64 has been removed as an available architecture for the ferret-sidejack package in ferret-sidejack_3.0.1-1kali7.

Thanks for the report.
