Is Dailymotion.com Safe?
I conducted a series of malware tests to find out if dailymotion.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 dailymotion.com without any issues.
To check this further I ran malware scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot on my computer after browsing the site dailymotion.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 dailymotion.com on the online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned with major no issues. You can see the same here: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/dailymotion.com
Sucuri graded the site dailymotion.com as a low security risk. It says no malware was found during its scan and that no security vendor has blacklisted the site.
Some improvements could be made such as adding a website firewall and solving the several missing security headers listed below:
Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors ‘none’. Affected pages:
https://www.dailymotion.com/ for Google’s UA
Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing.
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 minor issues don’t affect the overall grade of the scan from being a low security risk.
Lastly, I ran a malware scan with VirusTotal on the domain dailymotion.com and no security vendor has flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/domain/dailymotion.com
In conclusion, the site dailymotion.com is a low security risk according to Sucuri. And VirusTotal says no security vendors have flagged the domain as malicious. There is no malware on dailymotion.com and you can browse the site safely.
