Bypass MAC filtering on wireless networks
In this tutorial we will be looking at how to bypass MAC filtering on a wireless network. MAC filtering, or MAC white- or blacklisting, is often used as a security measure to prevent non whitelisted MAC addresses from connecting to the wireless network. MAC Address stands for media access control address and is a unique identifier assigned to your network interface. With MAC filtering you can specify MAC addresses which are allowed or not allowed to connect to the network. For many occasions this might be sufficient as a security measure which makes it a little harder to use the network when the password is known. As a security measure to protect company networks and data or to prevent networks from being hacked over WiFi, MAC filtering is pretty useless and easy to bypass which we’re about to show you in this hacking tutorial.
