It's an ineffective approach.  I'd prefer to add a section saying NOT to do
it and will provide the Stanford article link as backup. Fair?

PS: If you use an older browser you have much much bigger problems....

So we should mention that?? It is still a common approach to cover older

framebusting technique I'm all ears...

 The jscript stuff still makes it a little header. There are also some
sorta effective solutions. Should you not include them?

 I want to write a Cheat-sheet on Clickjacking defense.

I was thinking of just discussing the different framing blocking headers....

// to prevent all framing of this content 
response.addHeader( "X-FRAME-OPTIONS", "DENY" );

// to allow framing of this content only by this site
response.addHeader( "X-FRAME-OPTIONS", "SAMEORIGIN" );

// to allow framing from a specific domain
response.addHeader( "X-FRAME-OPTIONS", "ALLOW-FROM X" );

...and call it a day. I do not want to recommend manual framebreaking
JavaScript, it's completely ineffective and is easily evaded.

What do you think, any thoughts on this topic?
