Noticed a new field was implemented last night called ClientXRequestedWith. Any of you guys able to shed some light on how to interpret the data that’s in this field?
I assume it’s the
x-requested-with header from the client. Generally, only web browsers send this.
Yes…it IS a client header…but how and when is the data in the header used and how do I interpret the data in the field?
This is a non-standard request field:
- Field name: X-Requested-With
List of HTTP header fields @ Wikipedia
Hope it helps.
I’ve seen this in my own research on the topic. It explains the purpose but not the interpretation of the data present within and what uses it.
- If the field has a value, what does it mean?
- If the field has a value other than the default
XMLHttpRequest, what does this mean?
- How does the server receiving this header handle the information?
- Ultimately, can the data in this header be used to further enrich someone’s understanding of the call and correlate it to something else?
In that case, I can only wish you good luck in your research.
