Double standards: Apple implements MAC anti-tracking technique used by Aaron Swartz

 

 

Apple is going to implement random MAC addresses technology in its iOS8 devices, an anonymity-granting technique which late computer prodigy Aaron Swartz was accused of using to carry out his infamous MIT hack.

RT: Why is Apple suddenly becoming interested in boosting the privacy protection of its devices by spoofing MAC-addresses?

 

David Seaman: Thats one of the techniques that Apple has adopted to spoof these MAC-addresses and its just another step to make smart phones and other devices, other mobile devices a bit more secure. Of course you have to keep in mind that a smart phone is to begin with not all that secure, because there are so many different application developers, as well as the fact that you have to rely on whatever cell phone company is providing you with a signal. So this definitely doesnt make phones completely secure, but I think its a step in the right direction.
