Is pornhost.com Safe?

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

Sucuri says the site pornhost.com is a low security risk; however, it did have some minor issues. First, the scan detected that pornhost.com was using a TLS certificate that didn’t match the host name.

Some hardening improvements can be made:

  • Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors 'none'.
  • 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. The TLS certificate site issue wasn’t enough to change the overall grade of the scan either.

On a positive note, no security vendor associated with Sucuri has blacklisted the site pornhost.com, meaning they don’t think the site is malicious.

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

I also checked the domain pornhost.com on VirusTotal and no security vendor has flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: VirusTotal scan for the site pornhost.com.

In conclusion, Pornhost is a low security risk. Sucuri didn’t detect any malware. Moreover, no security vendor associated with Sucuri or VirusTotal has flagged the domain as malicious. Overall grade: Safe.
