1 became part of canonical set of "secure" HTTP headers. Over time, vulnerabilities in the "sanitizing" mode filter were found, so
1; mode=block became the recommended value. Some companies decided that they don't really need a browser-side XSS filter to mess with their web services which are XSS-free anyway and they became consciously disabling the XSS filter by setting the header to
Announces web server software and optionally version details.
Fuzzy content type guessing is disabled+1
A non-standard but widely accepted header introduced originally by Microsoft to disable "content sniffing" or heuristic content type discovery in absence or mismatch of a proper HTTP
Content-Type declaration, which led to a number of web attacks. In general, presence of the header with its only defined value of
nosniff is considered as part of a properly secured HTTP response.
The header sets permissive AJAX access by using wildcard origin
*. It may be OK if the website is a publicly accessible REST API but otherwise it should be not present at all
XmlHttpRequest from a website that is not in the same origin, which is a precaution against various types of data stealing attacks. The target server has to explicitly allow the origin domain using the
Access-Control-Allow-Origin (ACAO) header, or it may allow all origins to access it using a wildcard
*. The latter however creates a potential security issue if the website in question is transactional and processing sensitive data, so the wildcard should be only used on websites consciously offering public APIs.
