Is FMMods.com Safe?

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

I checked the site fmmods.com on the online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned with a scan 403 Forbidden site issue. You can see the same here: Sucuri scan for the site fmmods.com.

FMMods.com Sucuri results

Sucuri says the site fmmods.com is a medium security risk because the scan failed due to a 403 Forbidden message which is suspicious. The scan failed on the following URLs:

  • https://fmmods.com/
  • http://fmmods.com/

There are also missing 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

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

On a positive note, I can see that the site fmmods.com is already using a website firewall and that it isn’t blacklisted by any of Sucuri’s associated security vendors.

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

Unmask Parasites sites 2 suspicious inline scripts found:

Long suspicious script:

(function(){var js = "window['__CF$cv$params']={r:'76b7e2b16b1bcf8b',m:'GfUlUwzGp0XRlsBqQb61U.xvVBeV3PhedV3wbVugJOw-16686...

To try to confirm that the site is clean, I checked the domain fmmods.com on VirusTotal and 1 out of 84 security vendors has flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: VirusTotal scan for the site fmmods.com.

In conclusion, the site fmmods.com is a medium security risk according to Sucuri because the scan failed with a 403 Forbidden error at the root level of the domain which is suspicious. Unmask Parasites found 2 suspicious inline scripts. And 1 security vendor associated with VirusTotal has flagged the domain as malicious. Overall, the site fmmods.com is a medium security risk due to the suspicions by Sucuri and Unmask Parasites and flag by VirusTotal.
