X-Frame-Options test is a litle bit excessive.

Seems Arachni only agree when X-Frame-Options is set to DENY.

To my mind it must only complains when X-Frame-Options is missing or is set to 'ALLOW-FROM'
and not warn us when header set to 'DENY' or 'SAMEORIGIN'

    Judging from the code, it should only be logging it when missing.
    If you could show me the logged headers or better yet send me the AFR report (in private) that'd be very helpful.

    Also, which version and OS are you using?

    Hi Tasos.

    you're right, my analyse was bad.
    So i go deeper, and found that arachni complains on a ' 404 Not Found' page crawled where X-Frame-Options is missing.

    Linux arachni-1.3.2-0.5.9

    No problem.

    Btw, better try the new version, you're one behind.
