add x-frame headers #3739

as described in issue #3534, without x-frame headers we are vulnerable to click-jacking. I used v 1.2 because sinatra already uses that version.

Good thinking; has anyone tested this out?

@MrZYX, what do you think? Tag for a hotfix, as this is a security concern?

There's quite a lot an attacker needs to know/have upfront:

  • A trojaner on my computer/access to (my) wifi to MITM attack me.
  • That I'm using Diaspora
  • Which pod I use
  • Which elements I'm going to click when I use it.

Since I haven't heard of real world attack of Diaspora through this method yet I think a hotfix is unnecessary. That issue has been reported months ago and yet no one attacked Diaspora with it, so nice to have :)
