Description Adam Barth 2009-02-11 17:30:12 PST
We should implement X-Frame-Options to help sites defend against ClickJacking. Here is a blog post describing the feature: http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2009/01/27/ie8-security-part-vii-clickjacking-defenses.aspx I'm not sure this completely solves the ClickJacking problem, but it certainly does more good than harm. I can ask Eric Lawrence for a more detailed design doc if we want to make sure we match IE's behavior. Here is the Mozilla bug on this topic: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=475530 dveditz seems similarly positively disposed to implementing this feature.

This seems to be done in http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/42333

Indeed. I didn't remember this bug when I implemented it. My bad.

The current implementation of X-Frame-Options is not complete! IE8+ also supports ALLOW-FROM origin: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ieinternals/archive/2010/03/30/combating-clickjacking-with-x-frame-options.aspx Are there are plans to implement this in webkit?

X-Frame-Options is currently working its way though the IETF. I expect we'll implement whatever the final standard says, but it's not entirely clear what that will be at the moment. Thanks for your interest.
