Do you know what is clickjacking?

Clickjacking, also known as a “UI redress attack”, is when an attacker uses multiple transparent layers to trick a user into clicking on a button or link on another page when they were intending to click on the top-level page. Thus, the attacker is “hijacking” clicks meant for their page and routing them to another page, most likely owned by another application, domain, or both.

One of the most notorious examples of Clickjacking was an attack against the Adobe Flash plugin settings page. By loading this page into an invisible iframe, an attacker could trick a user into altering the security settings of Flash, permitting any Flash animation to utilize the computer’s microphone and camera.
