Common types of Clickjacking Attacks

  1. Likejacking: An attack method used to manipulate the Facebook “Like” button. Clickjacking redirects your “Likes” to unintended pages and posts.
  2. Cursorjacking: Cursorjacking manipulates your cursor in a way that it changes its position from where you perceive it to be.
  3. Filejacking: In Filejacking, the attacker tricks you into establishing an active file server connection on your web browser to access files on your device.

We recommend the following:

  1. Hover over links in webpages and check the URL before clicking.
  2. Always keep your antivirus and web browsers updated.
