MediaFire ( is a file hosting and sharing website where you can upload your files to your own account and then keep them for personal use or choose to share them with others over the internet. It is an advanced cloud storage site that not only allows you to store files in the cloud but use various features to share them with others. MediaFire is one of the only cloud storage sites to offer links that can be shared and downloaded directly without the need of opening a webpage on the cloud storage site beforehand. This not only saves users a click but can conceal which cloud storage service a webmaster is using.

Is Safe?

I analyzed for malware and malicious content to check if it was legit or a scam. Here are the results:

I checked on Sucuri, and it returned as a medium security risk. Results: Sucuri scan for the site Sucuri results

Sucuri says is a medium security risk because it encountered a 403 Forbidden (warning-400) site issue on the following URL:

Security hardening flaws:

  • Missing Strict-Transport-Security security header. Affected pages: for Google’s UA

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

Unmask Parasites cites a suspicious inline script found:

(function(){var js = "window['__CF$cv$params']={r:'7c410b5c48da1070',m:'owhygsRjPscn.egva4sjA05Leu.NpxV3D1e.pMO4Nto-16835...

I also checked on VirusTotal, and it is clean. Results: VirusTotal scan for the site

In conclusion, Sucuri says is a medium security risk because of a 403 Forbidden error. Unmask Parasites says is clean of parasites. VirusTotal and Sucuri say isn’t malicious or blacklisted. OVERALL GRADE: Relatively Safe.
