Output

For now the output is only in normal mode. Understant it as follows:

  • [+] Red Headers are bad headers that open a breach on your website or maybe show a lots of information. We recommend fix it.
  • [+] Yellow Headers are good headers that is not applied on your website. We recommend apply them.
  • [-] Green Headers are good headers that is already used in your website. It’s shown when use -s flag.
  • Cookie HTTP Only would be good to be applied
  • Cookie over SSL/TLS would be good to be applied
  • Server header would be good to be removed
  • Referrer-Policy would be good to be applied
  • X-Frame-Options is already in use, nothing to do here
  • X-XSS-Protection is already in use, nothing to do here
