Video Explanation of Facebook Likejacks

If you still don’t have a clear understanding of Facebook likejacks, then check out this YouTube video. The video is very obviously a Guarded ID advertisement. I’ve stated before that Guarded ID is one of the best ways to prevent clickjacking, so it’s no surprise that I find this video useful. On the other hand, I’ve also stated that there are ways around Guarded ID and pretty much every other clickjack protection that developers have come up with so far. It’s  the constant push pull of security and clickjacking.

What’s useful about this particular video is that it gives visual reference to how Fb likejacking works. People ask me all the time about these attacks, and I explain it as well as possible. When it comes to talking about things like “invisible iFrames,” though, visual tutorials tend to work best for laymen.

I hope that this helps you understand how the latest clickjacking attacks operate. Knowing about them is the first step towards protecting yourself and your computer. If you want, then check out Guarded ID to learn more about what the plug in can do for you. It can’t stop every single clickjack attack on the internet, but it is one of the best tools currently available.
