What is URL spoofing?
URL spoofing is the attempt to mislead a user to a different (often malicious) website by imitating or “spoofing” a legitimate URL.
How does URL spoofing work?
Sometimes spoofed URLs are accessed due to a bug in web browsers that lack the latest security updates. Other spoof URLs simply look similar to the original. For instance, the URL could transpose two letters in the hopes that the user won’t notice: www.experssvpn.com
