Clickjacking attack is one of the emerging web-based attack. In clickjacking, the user is tricked to click on transparent iframes placed over the web elements. This may lead to unwanted operations without the user’s knowledge. Even though, clickjacking is one of the major points of discussion, it is still unclear, how and to what extent the attacker might use this attack to lure the user and gain the user data. Therefore, in this paper we have proposed a solution that identifies malicious links which are being used for clickjacking attacks. In this, Extreme Machine Learning (ELM) technique is used, that classifies the malicious links present on the webpage and these are displayed on the webpage using the HTML CSS property. Only one type of malicious link is identified i.e. phishing links present on the webpage. Hence, phishing dataset is used. The Extreme Learning Machine model was compared with the support vector machine learning model with respect to their performance metrics. The training time required by the ELM model is less compared to SVM model.
