Web pages must be protected from being embedded in malicious sites (clickjacking).
Clickjacking is a malicious technique often used in phishing attacks. By using it, attackers may deceive users and make them perform actions other than the ones they perceive, which may cause them to reveal confidential information. Web servers can protect pages they host to a great extent by including headers in their responses that prevent the pages from being embedded in malicious sites (e.g., "X-Frame-Options").
