Definition Edit

Clickjacking, (also known as UI Redressing, or User Interface Redressing), is a scam whereby visitors to a website, or recipients of an email, are tricked into clicking on something that looks harmless but that really contains hidden code leading to generally undesirable results.

Overview Edit

Embedded elements are disguised or "redressed" to look like something a victim may not think twice about clicking, such as an embedded video, a social networking type "Like" button, or a flash game. Clicking one of these disguised elements can do anything from loading software onto a user’s computer or submitting confidential information to turning on that user’s webcam and microphone.
