nmap-mac-prefixes Sat, -0400 • (444,694 bytes) • ASCII The nmap-mac-prefixes file is used by Nmap to output meaningful OUI vendor names for MAC addresses it detects by matching the three-byte prefix taken from the MAC address and looking for a match in nmap-mac-prefixes file. The Nmap nmap-mac-prefixes file can typically be found in /usr/share/nmap/ on most Linux distributions.
An example of this can be seen by performing a nmap scan of a local network.

(This is similar to a flip flop.)suppressed DECnet flip flop A 'flip flop' report was suppressed because one of the two addresses was a DECnet address.

If the optional width is not specified, the default netmask for the network's class is used. The -r flag is used to specify a savefile (perhaps created by tcpdump(1) or pcapture(1)) to read from instead of reading from the network. If -u flag is used, arpwatch drops root privileges and changes user ID to username and group ID to that of the primary group of username. If the -e flag is used, arpwatch sends e-mail messages to username rather than the default (root).
If a single '-' character is given for the username, sending of e-mail is suppressed, but logging via syslog is still done as usual.
Fortunately for us there are lot of utilities available to track these attacks , arpwatch is my personal favorite .
