@EarthLaunch that is normal. System Preferences shows the Hardware Address. But ifconfig shows the current address which your device is identified as.
I already know of all those links, except the one on the Apple Dev forums.
One of the replies there does not look great for the future of spoofing on macOS, which ironically goes against Apple's very public image of pro Privacy....
joubin Jan 8, 2019 9:09 PM (in response to joubin) Alright everyone. My ticket has been closed and I pinged a bunch of friends I have that work at Apple HQ. Final result. This is not a bug. Apple is removing this feature for security reasons. This makes no sense since doing this does not put the individual doing it at a security risk. But I don't. Im so done with the platform. You can't just remove ifconfig functionality. Thats not how any of this works.
