Adding some HTTP headers for security (Bug 1531987)

X-XSS-Protection: Tells the browser not to disable XSS protection

X-Content-Type-Options: Tells the browser not to try to guess at
mimetypes of downloads

X-Permitted-Cross-Domain-Policies: Tells Flash & PDF not to trust
alternate crossdomain.xml files (which set the permissions on whether
this site allows itself to be accessed by scripts in Flash & PDF).
Prevents an attacker from uploading a more permissive crossdomain.xml

X-Powered-By: PHP by default sends this header with the current full
PHP version.

behatnotneeded: Selenium can't examine HTTP response headers
