HTTPS mixed content found. Your HTTPS website is referring to an HTTP resource:
http://secure-media.hotstar.com/static/sunset/us/assets/web/disney_bundle.png on https://www.hotstar.com/us
Some hardening improvements can be made:
- Missing security header for
ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use
Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors 'none'.
- Missing security header to prevent
Content-Security-Policydirective. We recommend adding the following CSP directives (you can use default-src if all values are the same): script-src, object-src, base-uri, frame-src
However, these hardening improvements don’t impact the Sucuri grade.
