Clickjacking For Shells

I presented Clickjacking for Shells at the OWASP Wellington, New Zealand Chapter Meeting on September 20th, 2011.


Two years after the world was warned about clickjacking, popular web apps are still vulnerable and no web app exploits have been published. With many security pros considering clickjacking to have mere nuisance value on social networks, the attack is grossly underestimated. I will demonstrate step by step how to identify vulnerable applications, how to write exploits that attack web apps and also how to protect against clickjacking. To demonstrate this issue I will publish an 0day clickjacking exploit for WordPress v3.1.2 and earlier to gain a shell on the webserver. In May this year the tech media reported and speculated upon clickjacking protection being implemented in WordPress and now I will show you why it is so important.
