given that a defense-in-depth strategy, including not having users log in with elevated access, should be used on client computers, preventing a malicious webpage from fully compromising the machine. Unfortunately though, the clickjacking attack could be used in combination with other exploits to bypass the security in place and wreak havoc on a system, depending on what defense-in-depth measures are in place. Current versions of Internet Explorer and Firefox both have protections in place now to prevent clickjacking attacks, but the underlying security vulnerability is complex and may not be completely patched in all browsers and websites.
