From Wikipedia:
"Clickjacking is a malicious technique of tricking web users into revealing confidential information or taking control of their computer while clicking on seemingly innocuous web pages. A vulnerability across a variety of browsers and platforms, a clickjacking takes the form of embedded code or script that can execute without the user's knowledge, such as clicking on a button that appears to perform another function.

Clickjacking (a term coined by Jeremiah Grossman and Robert Hansen in 2008) can be understood as an instance of the Confused deputy problem. A simple countermeasure is to use framekiller JavaScript to prevent the site from being included in a frame."

I don't know if Avast protects against it....

If the script code could be detected by the signature database you'll be protected.
I think Script Blocker of avast Pro will have an especial role here ;)

If you are using firefox and NoScript, I believe it has a section that deals with click jacking, what it calls ClearClick, see image. It is also in the notifications tab to notify on discovery of it.

It isn't set for trusted sites by default but adding it to that avoids the possibility of the hacking of a trusted site.
