Spoofing is a malicious practice in which communication is sent from an unknown/unauthorized source and disguised as a trusted source. It enables hackers to gain access to the personal information of the target user. 

Spoofing can be done by sending infected links or attachments through websites, emails, and phone calls, and even by Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) or Domain Name System (DNS) server.
