Some hardening improvements can be made such as solving the following missing security headers:

  • Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors ‘none’.
  • Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing.
  • Missing Strict-Transport-Security security header.
  • Missing Content-Security-Policy directive. We recommend to add the following CSP directives (you can use default-src if all values are the same): script-src, object-src, base-uri, frame-src

However, these security headers don’t change the overall grade of the Sucuri scan.

To check this further I ran a parasite scan with Unmask Parasites on the site thefappeningblog.com and it says the page is clean. You can see the same here: Unmask Parasites scan for the site thefappeningblog.com.

I ran another online malware scan with VirusTotal and it returned with no issues. 0 out of 90 security vendors flagged the site thefappeningblog.com as suspicious. You can see the same here: VirusTotal scan for the site thefappeningblog.com.
