On a positive note, I can see no malware was detected during Sucuri’s scan. Moreover, the site terabox.com is not blacklisted on any of the 9 blacklists checked.

Some hardening improvements can be made such as solving the following missing security headers:

Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors ‘none’. Affected pages:

Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing. Affected pages:

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

The site terabox.com could also add a website firewall to protect against hacks.

However, these hardening improvements don’t change the overall grade of the Sucuri scan.

I also ran a parasite scan with Unmask Parasites on the site terabox.com and it says the page seems to be suspicious. You can see the same here: https://unmask.sucuri.net/security-report/?page=terabox.com

Unmask Parasites sites 1 suspicious inline script found:

try {eval(decodeURIComponent(`function%20_0x1c83%28%29%7Bvar%20_0x46299c%3D%5B%27substring%27%2C%275yrkOAa%27%2C%27531567...

Lastly, I ran a malware scan with VirusTotal on the domain terabox.com and no security vendors have flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/domain/terabox.com

TeraBox.com VirusTotal results

In conclusion, the site terabox.com was graded as a medium security risk by Sucuri due to several TLS recommendations. Unmask Parasites found 1 suspicious inline script. And no security vendor associated with Sucuri or VirusTotal has blacklisted the domain or flagged it as malicious.
