Multiple Web Browsers Affected by Clickjacking

Posted: September 28, 2008 in Tech

US-CERT is warning web users of a new cross-browser exploit technique called “Clickjacking.”

Clickjacking gives an attacker the ability to trick a user into clicking on something only barely or momentarily noticeable. Therefore, if a user clicks on a web page, they may actually be clicking on content from another page.

The flaw affects most web browsers and that no fix is available, but that disabling browser scripting and plug-ins may help mitigate some of the risks.

Clickjacking affects Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera.
