A common request has been to allow embedding a Cloudron app into an external website. So far, we had disabled embedding to prevent Clickjacking (thanks to a security report by Imene Essoussi).
Quoting OWASP, clickjacking is a cunning technique to mislead the user into clicking something they didn't intend to:
For example, imagine an attacker who builds a web site that has a button on it that says "click here for a free iPod". However, on top of that web page, the attacker has loaded an iframe with your mail account, and lined up exactly the "delete all messages" button directly on top of the "free iPod" button. The victim tries to click on the "free iPod" button but instead actually clicked on the invisible "delete all messages" button. In essence, the attacker has "hijacked" the user's click, hence the name "Clickjacking".
One way to prevent clickjacking
is to prevent embedding the app into other sites. The Cloudron did
this by serving apps with the HTTP directive
While this change made it more secure (on most browsers), it had
the consequence of breaking our own Live Chat. Our Live Chat happens to be
a Rocket.Chat app
that runs on a Cloudron at
https://chat.cloudron.io - a different origin
from this site
We released a feature today that will let you configure
You can do so from the app's configure dialog:
As you can tell, for our case, we simply set the allowed origin to
https://cloudron.io and lo and behold, we have our Live Chat back!
