This is an error. It's as easy to spoof MAC addresses as it is to spoof

If it's so easy then why do some virus writers get caught when they are
stupid enough to upload the virus from their own PC?

So you connect to the internet (through your ISP, CyberCafe, Library,
whatever) they have a log of you connecting. Their DHCP server assigns
you an address. You fire off an email (originating from that IP
address) containing a "new" virus. See the trail?
