Jason, CEO/Lead Engineer JNETechnologies. FMR--USAF Special Operations Command at A.F. Information Warfare Center FL, NV.. Simply put, I assign a =<0.0 value to any "Trace" objectives. If attempting to spoof BIG BROTHER, know this value. Mac ID Properties Emulation and Manipulation (MIPEN), my pen, abilities would NEVER exist if we did not conceive it. Further, I heard a story, from a guy, went like this: Iraq was enriching an element via centrifugal methods. There was a software CDD. This PCUI directly accessed and modulated a DCM which had had it's and 3217 of it's partner's MAC ID modified. Guess what? Found first round. Then deployit.exe. I can untangle ANY EMI's at will with a single (GOV) snap-in.FYI

Good stuff, and very interesting. Things used to be so much simpler, when the source to Stuxnet was introduced to Iran's Nuclear facility. They should upgrade their policies, to mimic those of their enemy.

How do I prevent someone from spoofing all of my devices and my husbands. It's been 2 years since it started and I can't lose them. Please can anyone help me. Life's been hard since it began. Please message me and give me info on this subject if you can help. I'm totally illiterate to computers and their language lol. Don't understand

Well about this theme is very cool to bring it on. Do you know that Mac Spoofing is not illegal....?????? Well yes give a check out. So the question is if Mac Addresses is a layer 2 operation that occurs inside your network.What the hell I will do with that? I use a laptop with "Kali" installed in it.

In places that I want to see if the Wireless is secure I connect with and use the software aircrack to obtain info of the Access Point on the Place. And then I copy one of this mac address to my wifi card and connect it to the Network. And I gain access in no time.

The only way to avoid this is using MAC Filtering if the router has the capability activated.

Hello, Im not very good with advance stuff, so basically If my computer gets perma banned from a game for example.

What would i have to change in order for them not to find out its me, If i change IP then MAC will also need to be changed? other wise its a matter of time before they realise its you. I use FlyVPN that changes IP but is that enough?

If its and IP ban youll need a VPN, or VPN software.

but most people will have a dynamic ip, so when the ip changes the ban should be gone

That is not true. They have some information on their SQL Database to identify you if you use your pc again or laptop to access and meanwhile you try to access this info will be match and you still could not access.

Your MAC address doesn't operate (matter) anywhere above the Data Link layer (your home network), so it has nothing to do with a game server. If you are still banned, try using a different VPN, or changing your IP adress manually < look it up. You may also need to change your game key, which may be banned. Look that up as well, it depends on what game you are playing.
