Sucuri says handy.com is a low security risk; however, it returned a 403 Forbidden status on the URL https://www.handy.com/help.

Security hardening flaws:

  • Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing. Affected pages:
    https://help.handy.com/hc/en-us
  • Missing Strict-Transport-Security security header. Affected pages:
    https://help.handy.com/hc/en-us
    https://www.handy.com/404javascript.js

I then ran a parasite scan with Unmask Parasites on handy.com, and it is suspicious. Results: Unmask Parasites scan for handy.com.

Unmask Parasites cites 1 hidden external link:
