i am kind of confuse with the different between Spoofing attack and MITM attack, the two seems to be the same.

    Well, not to get too technical, try this analagy.
    A spoofing attack is pretending to be someone else by hiding your true identity - like putting a wrong return address on an envelope. When you get the letter in the mail you think it came from your friend in the same town when in reality someone in another state sent it. Whereas a MTM attack is an unauthorized host intercepting your information and then forwarding it on to the true destination. Like a Law Enforcement agency intercepting a letter you send to your friend, reading the contents (possibly even modifying the message) and then resealing the letter and sending it to your friend.
    All things are possible, only believe.
