Failed scans don’t necessarily mean that there is malware; it simply means Sucuri couldn’t run the scan. But when that happens, Sucuri lists the site as a medium security risk. However, Sucuri says that no associated security vendor has blacklisted the site.
Moreover, Sucuri says some security headers below could be improved:
- Missing security header to prevent
Strict-Transport-Securitysecurity header. Affected pages:
Content-Security-Policydirective. 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
The site fmovies.to should also consider creating an SPF record to avoid email spam.
However, these hardening improvements don’t impact the Sucuri grade.
From our experience, 6 security vendors flagging a site as malicious is rare and does suggest the site fmovies.to may indeed be malicious.
In conclusion, our initial scan with Sucuri failed which can happen and doesn’t mean a site is malicious. However, we ran another scan with VirusTotal and at least 6 security vendors have flagged the site fmovies.to as malicious. We recommend avoiding this site. Overall grade: Suspicious.
