Information Security with HelmetJS - Mitigate the Risk of Clickjacking with helmet.frameguard()

The instruction actually renders html tags that are meant to be viewed plainly as html tags.

<frame> and <iframe> are both being rendered causing a weird view. Also it doesn’t include full instructions like it does in a glitch template that is being provided for this curriculum. Please fix it!

Thanks

I actually decided to create an issue in FCC github.

Great work!!!


#4

What is the link to the issue?

#6

I see. And what about the github issue?


#7

Here it is. Are you a moderator?


#8

Nope. But, I just wanted to see the problem in more detail so I might be able to help more now. Also, now the community can look at your problem in more detail and they might be able to help more too!


#9

Fantastic! I am also looking forward to contribute to the FCC community. :slight_smile:

Hi !
To pass this test you can follow your own solution too
Perhaps there is a bug or somethings I don’t get but my solution is to install the package frameguard, to require it and then do deny it like that :

const frameguard = require('frameguard');

app.use(frameguard({ action: 'deny' }));
