The Wikipedias fail several checks. See https://observatory.mozilla.org/analyze.html?host=en.wikipedia.org

What do you think about making Wikipedias more compliant with web standards and recommendations? 77.180.38.231 17:37, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Most of these are in the works:

  • CSP: T135963
  • pinning: T92002
  • X-Frame-Options: in theory, this is set when needed (on pages which have clickjackable content), see T48560
  • weak TLS ciphers: T147199
  • referrer policy: this seems like an error, we do implement a referrer policy (T87276)

That leaves Subresource Integrity (does not seem relevant, we serve our own assets) and X-XSS-Protection (obsoleted by CSP). --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 22:19, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
