How would you define a "fake" IP or MAC address?

Good security measures are the best defence against hackers, not trying to trace the origin of packets.

It is very difficult to detect hacking, even for very experienced users. Experienced hackers go to considerable lengths to ensure they are not detected. Use good security practices. MAC addresses do not travel on the Internet. In most cases the only MAC address your computer will ever see is that of your own router.

Please avoid "texting" language on forums as it makes posts much more difficult to read. Posts that are difficult to read often aren't.
