Is Ebony8.com Safe?

I ran malware tests to find out if ebony8.com is safe and legit. Here are the results:

I checked the site ebony8.com on the online malware scanner Sucuri and was graded as a medium security risk due to outdated software. You can see the same here: Sucuri scan for the site ebony8.com.

Ebony8.com Sucuri results

Sucuri says the site ebony8.com is running an outdated PHP version (PHP under 7.2.31). There are several known vulnerabilities on PHP 7.2.

Some hardening improvements can also be made, namely creating an SPF record and fixing the following security headers:

  • Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors 'none'. Affected pages:
  • 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
  • Leaked PHP version. Your site is displaying your PHP version in the HTTP headers. Please set expose_php = Off.

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

On a positive note, the site ebony8.com is already using a website firewall to protect it against hacks.

To check this further I ran a parasite scan with Unmask Parasites on the site ebony8.com and it is clean. You can see the same here: Unmask Parasites scan for the site ebony8.com.

To try to confirm that the site is clean, I checked the domain ebony8.com on VirusTotal and no security vendor has flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: VirusTotal scan for the site ebony8.com.

In conclusion, Sucuri didn’t find any malware on the site ebony8.com and it was not blacklisted on any of its blacklists checked; however, it graded it as a medium security risk because it was running an outdated PHP version. Unmask Parasites says the site ebony8.com is clean of any parasites. And no security vendor on VirusTotal has flagged the site ebony8.com as malicious.
