Learn to clickjack

May 30, 2010

I don’t advocate clickjacking. It’s a malicious hack that has caused lots of problems for individuals and organization. As far as I’m concerned, if you can’t find an honest way to make money with the internet, then there’s something very, very wrong with you. With all of the market affiliate opportunities available online, it’s just dumb for crooks to concentrate on clickjacking.

And yet they do. So while I don’t advocate clickjacking, I do advocate education.

One of the best ways for you to learn how to avoid clickjacking attacks is to learn how they work.

Clickjacking hasn’t been around for very long, especially not when compared to viruses, which have been around for nearly as long as someone figured out how to make two computers communicate with each other. Most of the standard techniques, however, are pretty easy to learn. Web browsers and sites have a problem avoiding clickjacks because of the way that the entire ineternet is designed. It’s not like the clickjackers are just so good that no one understands their methods.

If you’re pretty computer savvy, then you can learn about basic clickjacking techniques at this Packet Storm Security page.

If you’ve ever worked with Javascript, then this information will be easy for you to follow. A lot of people could even fake their ways through this without formal training in any computer language. It’s not tough. It’s just hard to beat.
