ClickJacking Alert!

Zynga always surprises us with new things!
I don't know if they are really trying all kind of ways to catch the cheater or else

But this one is weird..
One of my mafia fellow is doing jobs in Moscow.. without using no script or tools. Then suddenly he got this message popping up on his game screen :

What is ClickJacking? Can any expert players give your valuable comments about this, please? We would love to hear from you.. Thanks a lot!

PS : Thanks to Jay!

Please give your comment if you like this post

"consist in hiding or disguising an user interface element from a site you trust (e.g. the "Send" button of your webmail site or a pre-configured "Donate" Paypal button) in a way which leads you to click it without knowledge of what you're exactly doing"

What are they looking for? Hiding things on MW

what if i do jobs by spamming clicking the "do job again" button, i got the same message by doing just that

Actually, the "clickjacking" alert appear everytime you hit on a certain part of the screen. I noticed that's in the bottom of the screen. I get the alert all the time :/

I don't know about this.. I mean never have this message on my screen (thanks God).
I hope they don't suspend our MW account accidently and just say that it is our fault! 0.o

Haha! dont think so.

But you use Google Chrome right?

The add-on "NoScript" it's only avaible for Firefox :)

I work in IT security, so I guess I qualify as an expert. :) Most importantly, this warning comes from NoScript on Firefox, and it is almost certainly a false alarm.

Clickjacking is a type of attack by a malicious website against you. In very simple terms, you think you are clicking on some button (e.g. the Do Job button here), but in reality there is a transparent HTML element over it, and you are actually clicking on that (e.g. a transparent "Send All My Private Data" button :P ).

It seems that this alarm only comes up on MW if the button you click on is close to the bottom of your browser window (seems to be some kind of weird interaction between the bottom Facebook menu and MW). What has worked for me so far is to scroll the page a little bit so that the button gets a little higher.

Hope it helps. :) I have nothing to do with Zynga BTW.

BTW, _don't_ uninstall NoScript. It is a very important add-on, and saves your life more times than you might imagine. ;-) (And I am not affiliated to NoScript, either...)

Loot a shipment of:
Dentist's Drills
21 Attack 11 Defense

a shipment of Dentist's Drills is coming and needs their friends to help loot it. Time is of the essence, as there are only a few shipments remaining

Never got the warning.

Could it be the same invisible flash button that you only see when you have flashblock installed?

I get this warning like a LOT. It is really annoying but still I wont uninstall NoScript. Just like what Asok said, its an important Add-On in Firefox.
