Sucuri says it ran into a 403 Forbidden site issue; however, it was still able to scan the site chaturbate.com and grade it as a low security risk. The 403 Forbidden was related to two URLs in particular that I have listed below:



These URLs didn’t prevent Sucuri from scanning the rest of the site. Sucuri says the site chaturbate.com has no malware. Moreover, Sucuri didn’t find any injected spam or defacements on the site chaturbate.com. I can also see that no security vendors associated with Sucuri have blacklisted the site chaturbate.com which means they don’t notice any malicious content on the site either.

Some improvements could be made such as solving the several missing security headers listed below:

  • Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing. Affected pages:
    http://chaturbate.com/ for Google’s UA
  • 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. Affected pages:
    http://chaturbate.com/ for Google’s UA
  • The ‘unsafe-inline’ keyword in Content-Security-Policy is not recommended. Consider using unsafe-hashes or nonces instead.

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 chaturbate.com and it says the page is clean. You can see the same here: Unmask Parasites scan for the site chaturbate.com.

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

In conclusion, Sucuri couldn’t scan a couple of the URLs on Chaturbate; however, it was still able to scan the site enough to conclude there is no malware. Moreover, no security vendor associated with Sucuri or VirusTotal has flagged the domain as malicious. Overall, I can see that the site chaturbate.com is a low security risk. Overall grade: Safe.
