It the olden days of hubs, this was indeed a real danger. However, unless the perp also has administrative access to the switch and can set up a monitor port (assuming that the switch has that capability, AND the BQ/BO server is on the same switch), merely plugging in a sniffer to an open port will only net them broadcast packets.

I'd like to add a #5 to Michael mighty four:
... This could also happen with a
lan sniffer on a system in your office, but I'd think that would be much
less likely.
