Web spoofing is the process of creating a shadow of an original web site that a user requests to access. The fraudulent web site looks similar, if not identical, to an actual site, such as a bank web site. An attacker who intercepts the request to a web site and replaces it with another modified one creates the shadow. When a victim is at the spoofed site, not only can the attacker see the information that the victim types, such as internet banking username, password, credit card information, and social security number, but the attacker can make changes to the data that the victim receives.
