    Given that MAC addresses are not used on the Internet (only IP addresses are used to route traffic, MAC addresses are relevant to local area networks only), what exact privacy advantage do you expect from this?

    mac can be read from you in the internet, if some ad-ware is allready installed on your pc.

    and in that case:
    "the big brother" can't see you if none of the applictions can't read your mac addres :ninja:
    "they" can't trace you if your ip is changing sometimes!!

    You can't be traced using your MAC address anyway. Your MAC address is not included in packets sent outside your local network (if you have a router, it will remove the part of the packet containing your network card's MAC address and replace it with its own MAC before forwarding packets onwards) and it is not included in any global registry like IP addresses are.

    The only likely "registry" of MAC addresses would be Microsoft's Windows Update and they would (a) have this data from any previous updates (b) have a number of other identifiers (including software licence keys) to match up against in the event of a changed/null MAC address.

    However most network cards can have their MAC address changed so anyone trying to collect and process such data would be on a fool's errand.

    listen you sound like a clever guy and i understand your point.
    but:
    i know some company that uses this method to mark you whan you use their appliction product. it is very famous company to.
    i have meet one of them, he was an administrator that work with me in the army in a secret base....bla bla bla bla.
    ok never mind, the main point is that they use your mac to know if it is realy you up ther that using their appliction.
    the proof is that - they use special technique to suppose for example block or nuke you they can specific user from entering ther web...... if them know is mac. and you cant came back even if you created a new user and change your ip and restore the registry.
    he told me that. and only because of my respect to hime i cant tell more.

    you dont have to believe me but this is what i know.

    so truh that mac is not a normal packet but.....
    the truth is out there

    Since the MAC address can be changed on most network cards, this seems a singularly unreliable means of authentication.
    You mean to say they store a cookie to identify whether you are a valid user or not. Well that's novel. :)

    The MAC address is held in the network card firmware and usually requires a special utility to change. This has had to be modifiable since some old network protocols required specific MAC addresses.

    look if ther is a chance that the mac can use agenst you even 3%.
    I just sugested that it be a good way to block it from none-dos appliction to have the mac. what is worng with it.
    and they realy use in that compeny the mac addres i know it.
    ok the end ​

    and i want to add that most users do not know how to change their mac address and like the Windows ID file "not having ID or Mac at all is more secur then change it sometimes"

    if you have a good idia for new ghst file to make or what to block, then tell me and i will work on it, then upload the file here and you will help me check.
    end everybody will enjoy from us.

    anyway thanks paranoid2000

    There are 2 issues - the first is that the MAC address will still be visible on any packets your PC sends out on an Ethernet network (the network card puts this regardless of Windows/DOS settings) so this doesn't stop tracking or tagging within your local network. So anyone with a valid concern over this would be better advised to change their MAC address using the appropriate network card utility - or keep changing cards.

    Secondly outside of a local network, the possibilities of authentication or tracking via a MAC address are almost nil. The company you mention may well be using MAC addresses within their own LAN (many universities do this for example to identify students' PCs) but for Internet access a user/password combination is really the only option.
    As far as MAC addresses go, registry restrictions can't really help. You may wish to check out application GUIDs or product registration keys (e.g. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Registration\ProductID for Office 2000). Another option would be the UserAssist keys (if they're not already covered) which store details of your previous actions (see Yet Another Method Windows Uses to Log Your Computer Activity) - any program attempting to read these would likely qualify as spyware.

    True, it works like this:
    If your application on your computer is reading your Ethernetcard(s) MAC-addres it can send that over the Internet and use it for authentication.
    You must understand that the Application on your computer can always read your MAC. and if the application is allowed by your firewall to connect to
    the Application makers Server (like an AV AntiSpyware etc.)
    It can check if the license-key is not used by 2 MAC addresses or
    isn't used on another computer.
    As you know the MAC-address contains a Vendor code etc. as well.
    So you know that it is a Sun Microsystems system, or a Apple or HP etc.
    If you combine this with other system information this can be usefull.

    On a Unix system like Solaris it is quitte easy to change your MAC address,
    but for some networkcards in your pc this is not possible.
    Another problem is that if you work in a larger LAN and 3th layer switches/routers are used it also is impossible to change your MAC otherwise
    you are dropped in a dead(vlan). (have no network access).

    The authentication on MAC on the Internet is just as old as the Internet itself.

    Example if Microsoft would implement that the license of your Windows version and your MAC adress where send over the Internet at every update (attempt) they could easaly find lots of people that are trying to use
    a network of pc's with one external IP and one License-key.

    And i agree on the fact that changing a MAC-address is not that simple
    for the avarage user.

    But to be honest, i am curious to know, which applications would react
    if i would change my computers Mac's.

    need to re-test this again (after all those years).

    :D
