Little Insight:

Click jacking just hide-the-button-and-follow-the-mouse. also know as UI Redressing (its just playing with the UI of the victim application by clicking and mouse event . In this post we'll show UI-Redressing attack and how an attacker may trigger an unexploitable XSS flaw in an application

How This Work?

UI-Redressing follow some techniques for making successful attack

  1. using mouse clicks
  2. making an invisible iframe & follow the mouse
  3. showing only a certain small part of a web page in a frame
  4. dragging a text out of an application
  5. dragging a text into an application

My Finding....

After using url .In result its xss payload store as hyperlink tag as click here to see result

When user click on hyperlink tag that xss run

That's an Self Xss which want user interaction but in that m found domain not set any security for X-Frame-Options Header its make an idea for Exploiting XSS with clickjacking
