Abstract

Hijacking user clicks and touch gestures has become a common attack
vector and offers a stealthy approach at escalating the privileges of a
process without raising red flags among users or AV software. Exploits
falling into this category are categorized as clickjacking attacks and
have gained increased popularity on mobile devices, Android being the
recent victim of a series of UI vulnerabilities.

Focusing on the
Android OS this paper highlights previous and current UI-based attack
vectors and finishes with an overview of security mechanisms, covering
both system-wide as well as app-level protection measures.
