So for those of you who don't know Clickjacking is?, it is a method of hijacking a users click in tricking him to click in to clicking some thing else. In the past Clickhijacking was used to hijack users click in to clicking on advertisements and make revenue.
Here is an example of a wordpress clickhijacking script that costs about 15$, that would trick the users into clicking ads without annoying them.
However now a days clickjacking is being used for tricking users in to liking a facebook page. As you might know that due to panda effect internet marketers are seen to be more focused on social media promotion. Therefore clickjacking scripts provid lots and lots of benefits to people who tend to use black hat SEO for promotion of the website and facebook pages.
But what makes this even worse is the people distributing the clickjacking scripts for free or selling it. Recently I came across dozens of forums selling clickjacking scritps on a very cheap rate.
Here are some of the screen shots which I took recently:
