Can instant messages be intercepted on corporate networks? Basically, do programs exist that network folks can use to intercept instant messages while logged on to a corporate network? Is Big Brother watching? Thanks.

Yes. I don’t use any specifically made for the purpose, but I’ve seen a lot of IM/Chat stuff go by just using my Ethereal sniffer.

If you Google “IM Sniffer”, you’ll get a LOT of matches.
