When I run the following code:
sudo ifconfig xxxx down sudo macchanger -r xxxx sudo ifconfig xxxx up
I do see a change in the mac address when doing the command
ifconfig. However after a certain amount of time passes, I use
ifconfig again and I notice that the mac address goes back to the permanent one.
THINGS I DON'T UNDERSTAND: Is macchanger a program constantly running in the background spoofing the mac address until a certain event happens? What might that event be? I assume that restarting the computer is one type event, but is my previous case of it being reverted after a certain amount of time normal? How do I know how long it will run?
QUESTION: Could someone explain to me how macchanger works and especially how long macchanger is running (if I need to modify something to have it run indefinitely, etc)?
