This is a patch for the ARP preprocessor to produce more detailed messages regarding the ARP Cache Override Attacks. The patch adds the following information to the default message: SHA (Sender Hardware Address), SPA (Sender Protocol Address), THA (Target Hardware Address) and TPA (Target Protocol Address) as defined in the ARP protocol message. This way, instead of getting a somewhat ambiguous default message (i.e (spp_arpspoof) Attempted ARP cache overwrite attack), it produces something like: "(spp_arpspoof) Attempted ARP cache overwrite attack, Mismatch mapping aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa <->, sha bb:bb:bb:bb:bb:bb, spa, tha cc:cc:cc:cc:cc:cc, tpa”.
