Ok.
An idea may be that the threat has to 'find' its snoop request in a global list every time it processes a packet. Once it cannot find it anymore, it dies. Removing the request from the global list would be the way to terminate the threat. Also, it would have to hold a look to the snoop request while it does anything else than waiting for packets in the pcap library.
