Is Aparat.com Safe?
I conducted a series of malware tests to find out if aparat.com is safe and legit. Here are the results:
I installed the Malwarebytes Browser Guard on my Edge browser and was able to browse the site aparat.com without any issues.
To check this further I ran malware scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot on my computer after browsing the site aparat.com and they returned no malware detection. I also ran a system-wide scan with Microsoft Defender and no malware was found.
To confirm that the site is clean, I also checked the site aparat.com on the online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned with no issues. You can see the same here: Sucuri scan for the site Aparat.com.
Sucuri says no malware was found and the site is not blacklisted by any security vendor.
Some improvements can be made, such as addressing the missing security headers listed below:
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.
Lastly, I ran a scan with VirusTotal on the domain aparat.com and no security vendor has flagged the site as malicious. You can see the same here: VirusTotal scan for the site Aparat.com.
In conclusion, the site aparat.com is safe to visit. Sucuri says the site is a low security risk and that no security vendors have blacklisted the site. And no security vendor on VirusTotal has flagged the domain as malicious.
