Is SolidTorrents.to Safe?

I conducted a series of malware tests to find out if SolidTorrents is safe and legit. Here are the results:

I installed the Malwarebytes Browser Guard on my Edge browser and was able to browse the site SolidTorrents.to without the browser guard saying the site is compromised or malicious.

To check this further I ran malware scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot – Search & Destroy and they returned no malware detection. I also ran a system-wide malware scan with Microsoft Defender and no malware was found.

To try to confirm that the site is clean, I also checked the site SolidTorrents.to on an online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned a 503 Service Unavailable scan failed issue. The scan failed at the domain level (http://solidtorrents.to/) which makes it an automatic medium security risk. You can see the scan results here: Sucuri scan for the site SolidTorrents.to.

On a positive note, a website firewall is installed and the site has not been blacklisted by any security vendor.

Some improvements can be made such as creating an SPF record to prevent spammers from abusing an email address and several missing security headers need to be solved. There is a missing security header for ClickJacking Protection on the page https://solidtorrents.to/404javascript.js. There is a missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing. There is a missing Strict-Transport-Security security header. And the site is also missing a Content-Security-Policy directive.

Lastly, I ran an online malware scan with VirusTotal for the site SolidTorrents.to and one security vendor flagged the domain as suspicious. However, 1 out of 88 is likely a false positive. You can see the results here: VirusTotal scan for the site SolidTorrents.to.
