Answer. is correct. Media access control (MAC) address filtering is vulnerable to spoofing attacks because attackers can easily change MAC addresses on network interface cards (NICs).

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) can be cracked using an initialization vector (IV) attack, but not by spoofing.

WPA2 Enterprise requires users to enter credentials, so it isn’t susceptible to a spoofing attack.
