The researchers who discovered the new clickjacking attack say fixes won't likely be coming soon

If you’re looking for a quick fix to protect your users from the new major “clickjacking” Web threat, it’s either disable all JavaScript, ActiveX, plugins, and iFrames, or revert back to an old-school text-based browser (think Linx). In other words, forget graphics or Web 2.0.

they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
