WordPress Improves Clickjacking Security

Improved clickjacking security seems to be the new thing amongst popular websites that allow user interface. First, Facebook released updates that would make it considerably more difficult for likejacking to take advantage of its site. Now, WordPress has released a beta version of its WordPress 3.2 that offers improved clickjacking security.

The latest update is WordPress 3.1.3, a platform that the company does not recommend for production servers. The company also says that its developments are right on schedule. That means the new version of WordPress will become widely available in just a couple weeks.

The company hasn’t specified exactly how the latest updates prevent clickjacking, but it is safe to assume that it uses some of the security features included in the latest Facebook updates. It will probably use a combination of security software that recognizes suspicious links and alerts that will allow users to decide whether they want to allow an action or not.

As long as WordPress remains as flexible and useful as its previous versions, this is great news for bloggers and Internet users alike.

By giving bloggers more control over the way that their websites function, WordPress could make it easier for them to prevent clickjacking links from affecting readers. Hopefully, WordPress has made some of the security features mandatory. That would prevent bloggers from incorporating clickjacked links into their posts.

As people become more aware of this problem, it is likely that companies will continue to search for solutions. That’s why we all need to stay informed about the security issues that might affect us.
