Click Jacking :

What is Click Jacking?

Click Jacking is a technique used by hackers or spammers to trick or cheat the users by making them click on links or buttons that are hidden from normal view (usually links colour is same as page background).
Click Jacking is possible because of a security weaknesses in browsers that allow web pages to be
layered and hidden from general view.

Here you think that you are clicking on a normal button or link, like the "Submit" button or "Download" button or "Like" button etc, but you are actually clicking on a hidden link. Since you can’t see the Click Jacker’s hidden link, you have no idea what you’re really doing. You could be downloading malware or making all your Facebook information public without realizing.

Some good hackers make Ajax Key Loggers and put them as javascripts over their fake websites and when you open them they retrieve all your passwords stored in web browser and record whatever you type while the web browser is open and store this information on their servers.

There are several types of Click Jacking but the most common is to hide a LIKE button under a dummy or fake button. This technique is called Like Jacking. A hacker might trick you by saying that youlike a product which you’ve never heard of. Like Jacking may sound like a bit small stuff but remember you may be helping a cracker to spread spam or share things that your friends may click and lead to some malwares..
