Clickjacking is when a threat actor leverages multiple transparent or opaque layers to trick users into clicking on a link or any component of a web application to redirect them to another page (often a malicious website). Clickjacking is also known as a “UI redress vulnerability” or “UI redress attack”.

Certain clickjacking vulnerabilities could also allow user keystrokes to also be hijacked.
