#5404 review defect

X-Frame-Options for admin/moderator views

Currently Mediagoblin doesn't do anything to prevent clickjacking.

Setting X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN in responses for those views would protect against this attack.

Here's a first stab at this using a meddleware class to set X-Frame-Options = SAMEORIGIN for all views. A better solution would would probably use decorators to set X-Frame-Options headers on specific views as mentioned in the ticket title.
