Clickjacking is a malicious attack in which a bad actor creates a transparent or opaque layer over a legitimate website to deceive visitors into clicking hidden buttons or links. Visitors inadvertently trigger a concealed action by clicking or tapping on what appears to be a benign button or link, potentially leading to compromised user accounts, stolen sensitive information, or malware installation on their devices.
User awareness and education also play a vital role in avoiding clickjacking attacks. Visitors should exercise caution when clicking links or buttons that seem unusual or are not in their expected location on a webpage. Preventing clickjacking attacks requires keeping software and web browsers up to date.
