My opinion is that yes google tracks your Mac address.

Dont use Gtalk or Chrome on a blackhat work machine would be the first bit of advise I would give you. I don't think all their apps pull Mac address but if they get one they will flag it onto your account on their back end.

I'm undecided on this one, getting your mac address can be achieved in javascript, .net and perl (and probably others) so its wouldnt be hard for them to do, whether or not they do it is anybody's guess. If your in doubt download a program called Smac - you will be able to spoof your network cards mac address.

No, the problem is not your broadband connection! Google cannot determine your broadband mac address connection, mac address's are replaced from hop to hop, and that is not how google is getting your mac address. By using Javascript or any of the other methods I mentioned then your client will handover the LOCAL mac address of your network connection and this is what you must change.

This thread is a huge eye opener for me.
I thought that just by changing my ip and clearing the cookies I would be leaving no footprint but clearly that is not the case.

I researched more on this. For all of you how want more info here is what I found:
-This can't be done on the server's side. So it can't be done with php etc.
-IMO its quite possible that installed google applications: google chrome, google desktop etc can send out your MAC to their servers. I know how paranoid this sounds, but knowing how information hungry they are its quite possible that they are doing this.
-This can be done in javascript. Its quite easy to implement this to work on IE. But from what I read online it won't work with other browsers. This approach uses ActiveX objects and it will work only on IE run from Windows. So if you use IE disable ActiveX.
-This is a huge problem for the people using automation tools. Most automation tools just run on top of IE.

Great informations dude,
yeah I just like get big hit when my friends asked about mac address. Just imagine google track our mac address >> that mean all fake ip we used can be easy to track >> also mean mass banned from all google application.

Does it mean not work too at mozilla??
how to switch off Activex?? I hear before we can turn it off to fight again browser exploitation.

Hope this thread make our IM activity more great dude :D

So while uploading videos do you need to change our IP and Mcaddress or just at the time of account creation?

As I know we can't change Mac address because that our computer address. format like this 00-34-E2-XX-XX. What we can do with mac address just sproof it or hide it, except you have hacker ability then you can change it.

by track mac address, that can be so easy track fake ip we use.

tubetoolbox also uses ie to work, this can be a big issue (yt accounts in danger) if you run multiple instances from the same machine..
