“Corrosion” is based on eth0, a library that is capable of sniffing a network and could be classified as a hacker tool were it not for the purpose of the library, which is auralization and visualization of underlying network data flow. eth0 allows to use the heartbeat of an underlying network in order to trigger realtime audio and video generation (and possibly a lot more). the video and audio data that is transformed, triggered, altered and spit out by corrosion comes entirely from peer to peer networks.
