Domain Spoofing

Domain Spoofing

The creation of a website domain that is made to look like a bona fide website. The victim logs into the spoofed website domain with their real credentials, which are then used by the attacker. For example, the attacker might claim there is an urgent document to be reviewed on droppbox.com instead of dropbox.com.
