Click Jacking (http-generic-click-jacking) Description: Clickjacking, also known as a UI redress attack, is a method in which an attacker uses multiple transparent or opaque layers to trick a user into clicking a button or link on a page other than the one they believe
they are clicking. Thus, the attacker is "hijacking" clicks meant for one page and routing the user to an illegitimate page.
