two questions about ssh tunneling

if I:

ssh -fND localhost:6000 somebody@ -p PORTNUMBER

from computer "A" to computer "B" [B =] then I can set the SOCKS proxy for e.g.: Firefox to use "localhost:6000" on computer "A". Ok. I can surf the web through "B".

- Can anyone sniff the traffic of "A"? [e.g.: computers on same subnet as "A"] Like DNS requests? - I think no, but I'm not sure :O

- Can anyone sniff the traffic of computer "B"? e.g.: B computer is at a server farm [others in the farm can see the traffic?] - I think yes, but I'm not sure :O
