Cyber attack: What´s Clickjacking?



Clickjacking, also known as User Interface redress attack, is a malicious technique of tricking a Web user to click on something different from what the user perceives they are clicking on. Clickjacking could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the user’s computer or lead the user to reveal confidential information without their knowledge.


A clickjacked page tricks a user into performing undesired actions by clicking on a concealed link. On a clickjacked page, the attackers load another page over it in a transparent layer. The users think that they are clicking visible buttons, but in reality they are performing actions on the hidden/invisible page.222Clickjacking_diagram-724769

The hidden page may be an authentic page; therefore, the attackers can trick users into performing actions which the users never intended. There is no way of tracing such actions to the attackers later, as the users would have been genuinely authenticated on the hidden page.222clickjacking_combo
