Clickjack Attack

Clickjacking, or clickjack attack, is a vulnerability used by an attacker to collect an infected user’s clicks. The attacker can force the user to do all sort of things from adjusting the user’s computer settings to unwittingly sending the user to Web sites that might have malicious code. Also, by taking advantage of Adobe Flash or JavaScript, an attacker could even place a button under or over a legitimate button, making it difficult for users to detect.
