I have heard of these attacks, like an attacker reading off your MAC 
address and even hardware serial numbers. I should be safe regarding 
serial numbers, but I am some concerned about the MAC address.

It would be very nice to know how to change the MAC address so it says 
something different when you run the ifconfig utility. Could you, or anyone, 
please help me with that? I'm using Linux.
