Abstract: Web security is an important approach for most institutions, organizations and individuals which use or provide their services through websites. In this study, a systematic and methodical evaluation of the exposure of web servers and HTTP security headers to attackers that can cause potential harm was tested in 240 Mozambican websites. Vulnerabilities related to HTTP security headers were obtained and the mechanisms which should be taken to reduce the security risks of the services available on the websites are presented.
