Protect yourself against "clickjacking"

There's a new way for Web baddies to get control of your computer. Apparently, so simple a child could do the code.

Clickjacking has been identified as a vulnerability for the Adobe Flash player, as well as for every major browser, including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari and even the newly released Google Chrome.

"It is a very serious problem," said Giorgio Maone, the author of a widely praised free Firefox extension called NoScript, which blocks potentially malicious scripts from running in the Firefox browser.

So don't hesitate. Download NoScript now. It's free, and it could save you a whole heap o' trouble.
