Sucuri says the site aparat.com doesn’t have malware or any important security issues and is a low security risk.

Some hardening improvements can be made:

  • Missing Strict-Transport-Security security header.
  • Missing Content-Security-Policy directive. We recommend adding the following CSP directives (you can use default-src if all values are the same): script-src, object-src, base-uri, frame-src

Moreover, no website firewall was detected which means the site is vulnerable to hacks and DDoS attacks. The site should also create an SPF record to prevent spammers from abusing the site’s email address.

However, these hardening improvements don’t impact the Sucuri grade.

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

I also checked the domain aparat.com on VirusTotal and no security vendor has flagged the site as malicious. You can see the same here: VirusTotal scan for the site Aparat.com.
