A MAC spoofing attack involves altering a network device's MAC address (network card). As a result, an attacker can obtain access to data delivered to a device by redirecting it to another device. MAC spoofing attacks are not monitored by default in Kaspersky Endpoint Security.
Although actual MAC (Media Access Control) numbers are intended to be permanent, many ways allow the operating system's MAC address to be modified, or "spoofed."
MAC address spoofing is an attack that uses off-the-shelf technology to modify the MAC address of a wireless device in a specific wireless network. Wireless networks are vulnerable to MAC address spoofing.
Mac spoofing is a relatively simple form of computer identity theft, which can be done for good or ill causes. Changing the MAC address on a NIC (network interface controller) card is known as MAC spoofing.
While MAC spoofing may be detected, finding the offending equipment once you know it's happening can be tough. Device triangulation (or, to be more precise, trilateration) is based on tracking the received signal strength indication (RSSI) of frames received from a specific device.
