Sucuri says the site pornbb.org is a medium security risk because the scan encountered a 403 Forbidden error.

Some hardening improvements can be made:

  • Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors 'none'. Affected pages:
    https://www.pornbb.org/404javascript.js
  • 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.

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