Hi Jason,

You have asked a really good question. I would like to
answer it with a scenario, lets say, I go for an
interview for the post of a security professional (in
general), I would need to convey my skills to the
persons there. If I tell them that I am a hacker, they
would argue and may ask, "hack this box and prove
it!". It may not be possible to hack the box kept in
front of you in that interview. But, if you have a
certification which is recognised by the industry then
they would really think that you are a hacker with
atleast basic skills which they wont argue. I knew
about hacking before doing CEH certification, but the
certificate is like a 'gate pass' if you dont have
adequate experience in the field. You may have long
stories to tell how you hacked some stuff but,
interviews last only for few minutes, isnt it ?

As someone interested in getting the CEH
certification, I was wondering what
you studied to get that cert.  Also, do you think
that getting the cert was
worthwhile?

Dear Unknown,

You are free to prefer any software as per your
will.
Technitium MAC Address Changer v3.1 has all the
features SMAC has. I am coding Technitium MAC
Address
Changer v4 which will have many more features than
SMAC. Still, v4 will be FREE. Finally, changing
MAC
address is basically changing a registry value.
Paying
anything like USD19.99 for software which
effectively
changes a registry key is stupidity as per my
views.

Regarding the questions by which you are convinced
...
I have some answers:

1. Is your software opensource?
Ans: No. No need to open source as it changes only
a
registry key. Its a simple VB6 app.

2. Is your software going to stay free forever?
Ans: Yes. Technitium MAC Address Changer will be
free
forever. Is it pinching you? If yes, then probably
you
are from KLC Consulting. I have lot more software
to
release still ;)

3. Do you offer free technical support?
Ans: No. If you want to change MAC address,
proably,
you know why you are doing so. Pen-testers and
security professionals dont need tech support as
they
are tech support!

Any question about me? I am a IT student, have
good
hand in hacking stuff, a good programer, Certified
Ethical Hacker by EC-Council, Cisco Certified
Network
Associate (CCNA), persuing to be Cisco Certified
Security Professional (CCSP).

I have used SMAC since 2002 and I have just got
SMAC
2.0 Professional.  It is a outstanding reliable
tool
for my training and pentest jobs.

KLC Consulting is giving FREE Licenses of SMAC
2.0
Professional Edition to Authors and Trainers. 
Since
I am a trainer, I got it for free. (check out
the
SMAC website: http://www.klcconsulting.net/smac)

With SMAC 2.0 I can pre-load MAC Addresses into
the
MAC List so I can choose MAC Address I want to
spoof
from my list.   It saved me a lot of time when
doing
demos and when I go to client sites to do
various
testings.

You said IPConfig is not important, however, all
my
students want to use IPConfig during the demo to
prove that MAC Address is spoofed from Windows
point
of view.

So, here is the question, convince me:

Is your software opensource?
Is your software going to stay free forever?
Do you offer free technical support? (if I ever
need
it)

If not, I am probably going to stick with SMAC
2.0
where I know the quality is good and I can get
free
tech support when I need it.  It's probably not
a
big deal to anyone (and I might be wrong), but
with
CISSP behind the SMAC development, it give me
just a
little peace of mind for this type of tools.
