New Clickjacking Strategies

Those of you with a technical background might want to learn about four new clickjacking methods recently unveiled by Paul Stone of Context Information Security.

One of the newest methods discovered by Stone involves typical drag-and-drop API that can get people to enter text into unidentified spaces without even knowing that they have done so. This opens up a whole new door for clickjacking criminals who want to steal personal information and trick internet users into performing acts without their knowledge.

If you are technical minded, then you will benefit from checking out this download from Context Information Security. The software will let you play around with Stone’s latest discovery.

Of course, then intent of Stone’s release is not to encourage more people to use clickjacking techniques maliciously. As a computer security professional, it is up to him to discover vulnerabilities before black hat security experts even know that they could use certain aspects of the internet against users.

It is now up to web site and browser designers to find a way to prevent these clickjacking techniques from becoming the next new wave in attacking unsuspecting internet users.
