Clickjacking

Postby bob » 09/26/08, 3:36 am

Researchers are beginning to raise an alarm for what looks like a scary new browser exploit/threat affecting all the major desktop platforms — Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Adobe Flash.

The threat, called Clickjacking, was to be discussed at the OWASP NYC AppSec 2008 Conference but, at the request of Adobe and other affected vendors, the talk was nixed until a comprehensive fix is ready.

The two researchers behind the discovery — Robert Hansen (left) and Jeremiah Grossman — have released droplets of information to highlight the severity of this issue.

... did any more on this come out? Sounds like nothing to be alarmed about until somebody can demonstrate the attack. There are probably quite a few ways of pulling off something like what was described, however it's rarely as easy as the concept.

Yeah apparently adobe are all freaked out about it and MS are dismissive until something more concrete is shown. My guess would be another y2.0k bug.


Hmmmm...... "y2.0k bug" (c) 2008 Gerry :D


I mean there might be something to it... but until the show me something I'll put it with that Irish guy who was gonna make the net a lot faster:
