Definition Edit

Likejacking is a Facebook-enabled clickjacking attack that tricks a user into clicking links that mark the clicked site as one of his/her Facebook "likes." After clicking "like", a link to the malicious page is posted to the user's profile in an attempt to dupe his friends and family to click on the link as well.

Overview Edit

"Facebook has largely countered this attack by asking the user to confirm a 'Like' before it posts if the user is 'Liking' an untrustworthy domain."[1]
