      Description

      Solr server should set some best practice http security response headers, to e.g. protect users of the admin ui against XSS/injection/clickjacking/etc

      • Content-Security-Policy
      • X-Content-Type-Options
      • X-XSS-Protection
      • X-Frame-Options

      Disabling inline javascript is important, so that e.g. if there is a bug then injected code doesn't get executed. Unfortunately the current admin UI dangerously relies on eval, so for now unsafe-eval must be allowed so that everything still works. This should really be cleaned up, i have the feeling as long as it works this way, that you can still execute stuff.
