15.5 Content-Disposition Issues

RFC 1806 [35], from which the often implemented Content-Disposition (see Section 19.5.1) header in HTTP is derived, has a number of very serious security considerations. Content-Disposition is not part of the HTTP standard, but since it is widely implemented, we are documenting its use and risks for implementors. See RFC 2183 [49] (which updates RFC 1806) for details.
