You will learn how fancy UI using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3 allow for sophisticated attacks against the users of your applications on the client side.

You will learn how to avoid and/or mitigate such attacks and what is the risk involved.


This intentionally funny and technically light talk+demo will show you how and what are User Interface Redressing Attacks.

Web Applications using HTML5 + JavaScript + CSS3 + Modern Browsers are vulnerable to attacks such as Clickjacking, Strokejacking, Cursor Tracking, Unxploitable XSS and Facebook Like attacks.

TL;DR Cool demo and simple to understand explaination of ClickJacking
