Insufficient protection against 'clickjacking'
LedgerSMB does not sufficiently guard against being wrapped by
other sites, making it vulnerable to 'clickjacking. This allows
an attacker to trick a targetted user to execute unintended actions.

In a clickjacking attack, an attacker (invisibly) wraps the vulnerable
site in his own site, carefully placing elements of his own site over
elements of the wrapped site, tricking the user into performing unintended
actions on the vulnerable site. More information on clickjacking is on the
OWASP page at https://owasp.org/www-community/attacks/Clickjacking
The lack of protection dates back to version 1.0, although it must
be noted that mitigation measures were first available in browsers
as of 2011 -- the year of the release of 1.3.0.
