Issue/Introduction

Security Centre team scan web vulnerability assessment on the spectrum one click. They have found Clickjacking: X-Frame-Options header missing.

Cause

"Clickjacking (User Interface redress attack, UI redress attack, UI redressing) is a malicious technique of
tricking a Web user into clicking on something di􀁷erent from what the user perceives they are clicking on,
thus potentially revealing confidential information or taking control of their computer while clicking on
seemingly innocuous web pages.
The server didn't return an X-Frame-Options header which means that this website could be at risk of a
clickjacking attack. The X-Frame-Options HTTP response header can be used to indicate whether or not a
browser should be allowed to render a page inside a frame or iframe. Sites can use this to avoid
clickjacking attacks, by ensuring that their content is not embedded into other sites."
