Clickjacking is what happens when links spread around on Facebook and twitter and it prompts users to download malware.

Those pop-up windows look like Adobe Flash Player technology. Once users download the fake software, schemers take control of the user's profile

WFMY News 2 reached out to Total Computer Solutions to find out how you can identify the fake link.

Corey Couch with Total Computer Solutions said he's seen a lot of these links lately.

"I rarely seen a website that requires you to update flash player to view it, but it does happen," Couch said.

Total Computer Solutions advises that if you get that second browser window asking them to update adobe flash, run some malware removal tools, or contact a  computer consultant to make sure your PC is free of any malicious software.
