Clickjacking

23 Oct

Have you heard of Clickjacking? A friend of mine recently had it happen to him; don’t let it happen to you.

Clickjacking is when a hacker embeds code in a website, then a user clicks on it, and allows the hacker to take over their browser. Once in control, they can click any link without the knowledge of the browser user. If they can take over your browser when you walk away, imagine the possibilities.

So how do you protect yourself?

  1. First of all download a browser that has higher security features than Internet Explorer; I suggest Mozilla Firefox.
  2. Then download a Mozilla Add-on called “No Script” which will turn off off all suspicious code on websites. It is not easy to browse at first because you have to approve the content your want to see. If you don’t whitelist or approve areas on your screen, you will see nothing.

Is there anything else we can do to prevent Clickjacking?
