Dear Norton Experts,
I was wondering if NIS 2009 is able to "stop" CLICKJACKING. I heard that it is now a very serious threat to Internet users.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Never heard of it. Be sure to use Firefox when browsing. I ran alot of tests on NIS 2009. Keylogges,leak tests code injections and NIS stopped them all. Also browse using Sandboxie. I run Threatfire along side NIS.Message Edited by Dieselman743 on 10-09-2008 08:45 PM
Above is a link to information above ClickJacking.
I am using IE7 most of the time and seldom use Firefox. Perhaps I should change. I was also thinking of using Opera.
Anyway, I was thinking more if SONAR could be able to Stop it, just in case if browsers missed it.

Clickjacking would be when your computer is hijacked by simply clicking on a malsite link.
Norton is supposed to protect against that, and it gets good reviews. Just remember that no product is better than its knowledge of the threats out there. There is always a gap in time between the creation of a new malware and its being identified. For that reason, the first line of the defense is the user. Go nowhere that you don't have reason to trust. Click on nothing that you can verify who sent the link to you and why the link is being offered. I have gotten so paranoid, I almost never click on email links.
Firefox is vulnerable and so are Macs, just not as vulnerable as Internet Explorer on PC machines.

Since you use Firefox more than I do, I was wondering if you have tried this new add-on which is supposed to aid in the prevention of clickjacking.
I think it just came out yesterday.
