Lightweight freeware to test a website / URL for clickjacking

Posted on 2014-11-18
Last Modified: 2014-12-12
Not looking for Wireshark type of scanner which is rather large & memory hungry.  Not Nessus as I
don't have a licence.

Kindly provide links that I could download freeware to scan if a website is vulnerable to clickjacking?

For this link, is the tool   Nikto, Davtest or CMS Explorer.
Does it run on Windows?

they do not perform clickjacking per se, nonetheless, here as below - they are PERL based so OS with win PERL will have Windows supported. The last two did not have readily win package probably need to do further digging
Nikto2 -
DAVtest -
CMS Explorer -

Looks like Davtest is missing something despite that ActivePerl is
installed on my Win XP with ACtivePerl's directory in the path:

Can't locate HTTP/ in @INC (@INC contains: C:/Perl/site/lib C:/Perl/lib .)
 at D:\vaScanClickj\davtest-1.0\ line 30.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at D:\vaScanClickj\davtest-1.0\ line

I'll try something else

When I click on "Other Codes" ==> "ClickJacking" or "Site Crunch",
nothing returns.  Have to try other sites

Nikto2 scans more than 400+ vulnerabilities & I can't select to scan only
for Clickjacking: this will trigger security alerts & the scan may be blocked
before I get a chance.

no Joy with davtest due to the Perl error.

I may need help with this lightweight tool to scan: is there anything
within davtest perl that can be customized to just scan clickjacking?

Any other ready-to-run scanner will be ideal as I'll need to show
the scan results by Monday noon

For nikto, I saw command line option using -T (-Tuning) option stating will control the test that Nikto will use against a target. By default, all tests are performed. If any options are specified, only those tests will be performed.
In the default mode, if -T is invoked only the test type(s) specified will be executed. For example, only the tests for "Remote file retrieval" and "Command execution" can performed against the target:

perl -h -T 58
If an "x" is passed to -T then this will negate all tests of types following the x. This is useful where a test may check several different types of exploit. For example:

perl -h -T 58xb
did not manage to drill into the windows binary though..Also probably has to play around which option is specifc to clickjacking but my guess is the Injection (4). Here is one on the setup (not windows) though in case you needed that.

For the DAVtest, looks like the error is reported as well in the post - stating to to install the HTTP::DAV module (from

Got the following html page & just by launching it (after amending the URL
in it), it will be able to tell if the URL is vulnerable.  Does this really work?

     <title>Clickjack test page</title>
     <p>URL is vulnerable to clickjacking if u can see it below; if u can see only this line, then it's not vulnerable </p>
     <iframe src="" width="500" height="500"></iframe>

yes it should as already mentioned earlier in the OWASP cheatsheet link
If you can see both the text "Website is vulnerable to clickjacking!" at the top of the page and your target web page successfully loaded into the frame, then your site is vulnerable and has no type of protection against Clickjacking attacks.

There is another HTML tester mentioned earlier which is just an HTML page to load your chosen target in a browser and then overlay content over the top
