UI Redressing (UIR) describes a set of powerful attacks which can be used to circumvent browser security mechanisms like sandboxing and the Same-Origin Policy. In essence, an attacker wants to lure a victim into performing actions out of context by commonly making use of social engineering techniques in combination with invisible elements and hijacked trustworthy events. Introduced in 2008, clickjacking was the first UIR attack which made it possible to automatically hijack the camera respectively microphone of the victim by stealing a few left-clicks within a Flash-based browser game.
This talk shows fundamentals, attacks, and countermeasures of UIR in depth. In addition to well known techniques, research results like case studies of UIR attacks will be presented.
