=============================== SMAC 2.0 - MAC Address Spoofer ===============================
SMAC 2.0 URL:
SMAC 2.0 is released!
SMAC is a powerful, yet an easy-to-use and intuitive Windows MAC Address Changer which allows users to spoof MAC address for almost any Network Interface Cards (NIC) on the Windows 2000, XP, and 2003 Server systems, regardless of whether the manufacturers allow this option or not.
================== SMAC 2.0 Features: ==================
- Change MAC Address with 3 clicks:
--- Click to select a network adapter
--- Click "Random" to generate a MAC Address to spoof
--- Click "Update MAC" to change and activate new MAC Address
- Protect your personal privacy by hiding the real MAC Address of your Network Adapters
- Easy, intuitive, and user-friendly GUI for viewing and changing MAC addresses
- Allow users the option to set the network adapter to automatically restart after MAC Address spoofing, or manually restart
- Displays the following information of your Network Interface Card (NIC)
o Device ID o Active Status o NIC description o NIC Manufacturer o Spoofed status (Yes/No) o IP Address o Active MAC addresses o Spoofed MAC Address o NIC Hardware ID o NIC Configuration ID
- Displays the Network Adapter manufacturer associated with the New Spoofed MAC Address
- Generate random MAC Addresses to spoof
- Option to display detailed information of all available adapters, or ONLY the active network adapters
- Display Network and IP Configuration (IPConfig) information with 1 button click
- View up to 10 Most Recently Used (MRU) MAC Addresses and select a new Spoofed MAC Address directly from the MRU list
- Load a MAC Address List and choose New Spoofed MAC Address directly from the list
- Create comprehensive reports on Network Adapter details
- Built-in logging capability allows users to track MAC address change activities
- Remove spoofed MAC Address to restore original MAC Address
====================== Why use SMAC? ======================
-Protect Personal and Individual Privacy by cloning a different MAC Address. Many organizations track wired or wireless network users via their MAC Addresses... In addition, there are more and more wifi Wireless connections available these days, and Wireless network is all based on the MAC Addresses, therefore, wireless network security and privacy is all about MAC Addresses!
-Perform Security Vulnerability Testing. Penetration Testing on MAC Address based Authentication and Authorization Systems, i.e. Wireless Access Points. (Disclaimer: Authorization to perform these tests must be obtained from the system owner(s).)
-Build "TRUE" Stand-by (offline) systems with the EXACTLY THE SAME ComputerName, IP, and MAC ADDRESSES as the Primary Systems. If Stand-by systems should be put online, NO ARP table refresh is necessary, which eliminates any possible ARP related issues that could cause extra downtime.
-Some online Game Players (Gamers) require changing the MAC addresses to fix IP problems for some reasons...
-Build High-Availability solutions. For example, some firewalls that run on multi-port NIC's (i.e. quad port NIC) require the same MAC address for every port to achieve fail-over.
-Troubleshoot Network problems. ARP Tables, Routering, Switching, ...
-Troubleshoot system problems
-Test network management tools
-Test incident response procedures on simulated network problems
-Test Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), whether they are Host and Network Based IDS.
-If for whatever reason you need to keep the same MAC address as your old NIC, but your old NIC failed...
-Some software can ONLY be installed and run on the systems with pre-defined MAC address in the license file. If you need to install one of these software to another system with a different Network Interface Card (NIC) because your system or NIC is broken, SMAC will come handy. However, you are responsible to comply with the software vendor's licensing agreement.
-Some Cable Modem ISP's assign users the IP addresses base on the PC's MAC addresses. For whatever reason, if you need to swap 2 PC's regularly to connect to the cable modem, it would be a lot easier to change the MAC addresses rather than to change Network Interface Card (NIC). (You need to check with your ISP and make sure you are not violating any service agreements.)
