Clickjacking

What is meant by clickjacking?

Clickjacking are attempts to trick users into clicking on malicious links hidden within legitimate-looking videos, images, and articles.

A clickjacked link could redirect users to an infected website, a phishing site, online scam, or spam. Alternatively, a clickjacking attempt could induce a user to unknowingly post a promotional or harmful content on their LinkedIn profile or Facebook page.
