Wanted – have you seen this MAC address: f8:e0:79:af:57:eb? German cops appeal for logs in bomb probe

It depends on if you are dealing with an advanced script-kiddy or someone who is actually IT literate. QR codes are a bit more advanced than normal script-kiddy stuff but would say one has to be IT literate to use one. MAC addresses are less well known as generally they are not that important to the average user. They have probably seen them when pairing a Bluetooth device but would not have much need to be really aware of what they are or do.
