Is Proxyrarbg.org Safe?

I ran malware tests to find out if proxyrarbg.org is safe and legit. Here are the results:

I checked the site proxyrarbg.org on the online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned with a scan 403 Forbidden site issue. You can see the same here: Sucuri scan for the site proxyrarbg.org.

Proxyrarbg.org Sucuri results

Sucuri says the scan failed on the following URLs:

  • https://proxyrarbg.org/
  • http://proxyrarbg.org/

When the scan fails at the root domain level, Sucuri automatically grades it as a medium security risk because it is suspicious.

This is also a TLS recommendation: there is no redirect setup from HTTP to HTTPS version of the domain.

There are also some missing security headers:

  • Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing.
  • 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.

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

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

Unmask Parasites sites 1 suspicious inline script found:

To try to confirm that the site is clean, I checked the domain proxyrarbg.org on VirusTotal and 2 out of 84 security vendors have flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: VirusTotal scan for the site proxyrarbg.org.
