URL spoofing is when an unknown and fraudulent source creates a fake URL which impersonates a legitimate and secure website. The spoofed URL or website address looks exactly like the original and safe URL, but is actually redirecting all the traffic to a booby trapped website. Users may be attacked by phishing website via search engine referrals, browser plugins/extensions, third party or invalid apps.
