status code

The status code is a response from the server to a client. Each status code represents a specific response. The common response code includes 404 (Page not found), 401 (Unauthorised) and many more. Status code 200 denotes ‘OK’ from HTTP. If an application does return status 200, the subresource-integrity won’t get evaluated. The subresource-integrity is a major security feature that instructs a web browser to verify the resources fetched from third-party applications like CDNs. This verification involves checking if the content has been manipulated during the transmission of the data or not.

Impact

The website won’t be accessible to the users. This will be a major loss including development time for your team.

Mitigation / Precaution

  • Deactivate all contributed modules and Test each contributed modules for bugs.
  • Make sure the proxy_server and/or proxy_port variables are correct if you are using a proxy.
