I just noticed this today. It’s a big deal, but because it effectively breaks many major petting zoos that historically relied on frames. Someone kindly wrote a page explaining the situation.
So, what is clickjacking? For a simple explanation, someone can use your click to click something in other legitimate website by making other page website (such as facebook) to be 100% transparent. It can be done by using html styling. So it’s one of a known security vulnerability in all browser. Click here for wikipedia definition of clickjacking.
Basically, someone could have, and probably has, put transparent buttons or who knows what above the frame in which the (fluff)Book was loaded in and bad things happened. So now, to combat this, Facebook is putting this semi-transparent layer over pages that work.
To fix this huge problem, you can read this excellent guide that may lead to a possible solution. (I haven’t tested it.) Basically, you’re going to install a plugin that will disable the transparent layer. It works for Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox.
Another solution might be the Fluff Grabber. Since the Fluff Grabber uses absolutely no frames, it does not have this problem. Opening links in their tabs in the better way to pet many (fluff)Friends as quickly as possible, and even more so now with the transparent layer problem. The Fluff Grabber works amazingly well with SnapLinks and also has its own mass-opening functionality built right in. Seriously, check it out.
Do you have any comments regarding this matter? Perhaps a better work-a-round? Leave a comment!
