Therefore it stands to reason that you probably don't want to risk being infected by JS/ClickJack, so how do you go about preventing this from happening? Well luckily there are some extremely simple steps that you can take, and things that you can bear in mind. You just need to not get swept up and get sucked in by a tempting looking malicious program!
Here are 5 ways you can protect your computer from JS/ClickJack malware
- When you are not using your computer you should turn it off and disconnect your DSL or modem line. This will ensure that no cybercriminals who are roaming the Internet looking for online computers that have weak security or security loopholes can access your computer.
- If you use instant messaging or online chat applications, make sure the settings are configured so that the app doesn't automatically open when you start your computer or laptop.
- Install a reputable brand of anti-virus or anti-malware software and run it manually (even though it will run itself – but it's always better to be safe than sorry). You also need to make sure it's kept up to date and you have the latest patches downloaded.
- The next time (i.e. now!) you're logged into your email inbox check your settings and make sure that the message preview pane is set to off. When it's off macros will be unable to execute themselves.
- Whatever software you have installed on your machine, make sure you update it with the latest manufacturer's patches as soon as they release them.
If you're constantly getting notifications from your anti-virus program about JS/ClickJack virus then it could be that your anti-virus cannot properly detect the source of this infection and remove it. Or it could also be another malware program that wasn't detected by your anti-virus which keeps re-installing the JS/ClickJack virus on your computer. That could be a deeply embedded rootkit or a Trojan horse. In such case, you don't need to re-install it or even format your computer. There are a few malware removal tools that can be used to remove this infection from the system when anti-virus programs fail. To remove this virus and other malware that may have been installed on your computer, please follow the removal guide below. If you have questions, leave a down comment below.
