X-XSS-Protection Not Set


The application does not use an X-XSS-Protection header. This header was introduced by Microsoft in IE 8 to block cross site scripting attacks (XSS).  With the X-XSS-Protection header, if a reflected XSS attacked is identified, the browser will log the attack and prevent rendering of the page. Currently, only Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Safari support this header.
