Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2014 -- Software Development Resource has recently released an addition to their software application product line-up. With their continuing tradition of free software resource, this MAC address changer is already the 22nd release and Steven Coluido, company president remarks: “there is more to come as we carve our way towards total recognition and branding identity and as our commitment grows, our software will remain meek and easy to use for everyone.”
All About MAC Addresses
MAC or commonly known as Media Access Control address [some experts refer to the M as Machine], are the unique combination of numbers that every device is assigned with for network interface purposes.
In comparison, its uniqueness is equivalent to a person's thumb mark; not one combination is the same.
These codes or serial numbers are generated by the manufacturers prior to selling to be able to identify a certain device before it plunges into any types of network. It is differentiated with IP address since IP addresses are used when connecting to the internet so a website knows to which device any information will be sent over.
On the other hand, given the propensity of security threats over shared networks that need the use of MAC address for identification, there are people who change their MAC addresses instead to remain hidden from possible attackers.
MAC numbers are usually 48-bit hexadecimal figures with 12 characters total. The process of changing them is called spoofing and its possible in a myriad of ways. One such way: SDR's free MAC address changer.
By doing so, any administrator or those with access to MAC addresses can't easily determine whether or not a connecting device with given unique MACs are connecting on the same link or on a network segment bridge. Although many experts say that MAC addresses are in no way hackable, it's better safe than sorry to avoid any regrets in the future.
There are also other methods to change this address according to OS but SDR's own is easier to navigate and does all that competition does without added costs.
