In theory, yes. You'd need to disable IP forwarding so the data doesn't pass through the attacking machine. You'd need to forward the client's download request and then intercept the download as it bounces off the attacker. Once you have this file, modify it as you wish and send it to the victim while spoofing yourself as the server. NOTE: This process ...

There are actually 3-4 questions in your post, and they can mostly be answered with just networking answers. if I spoof the "source" IP to an IP of the segment 172.16.x.x, will spoofing work? It depends what you mean by "work", but the principle of spoofing is to fake packet and see what happens. You can fake what you want, the idea will be then to ...

Let's say we have a network with Bob, Alice, and the router. You are an attacker, called Eve. Now, you wish to carry out a MITM between Bob and the router. There are multiple options now: Capture traffic flowing from Bob to the router (e.g.traffic flowing to Facebook) Capture traffic flowing from the router to Bob (e.g. traffic flowing from Facebook to ...

What you might be describing is ARP Poisoning (or spoofing), where the attacker "poisons" the ARP caches of the hosts on the subnet by sending out lots and lots of ARP packets containing the attacker's layer-2 (MAC) address and the victim's layer-3 (IP Address), causing them to send their data to the attacker's MAC when the ethernet frame is assembled ...

ARP Spoofing is mostly the basis of MitM Attacks. It is used to redirect the traffic initially. This is done by fooling the victim into beliving that your mac address is associated to the routers ip address. This is called ARP-Spoofing or ARP-Cache poisoning. DNS Spoofing is used to target specific sites. For example if you created a fake site that is ...
