Is Torrentfunk.com Safe?

I conducted a series of malware tests to find out if Torrentfunk 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 torrentfunk.com without the browser guard saying the site was compromised or malicious.

To check this further I ran malware scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot – Search & Destroy on my computer after having browsed the site torrentfunk.com and both scans returned no malware detection. I also ran a full 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 torrentfunk.com on an online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned a 503 Service Unavailable scan failed issue. The scan failed at the domain level (http://torrentfunk.com/) which means the site is an automatic medium security risk. You can see the scan results here: Sucuri scan for the site torrentfunk.com.

On a positive note, the site has not been blacklisted by any security vendor and the site also uses a firewall.

Some improvements could be made, namely solving the missing security headers. This site has a missing security header for ClickJacking Protection on the page https://www.torrentfunk.com/404javascript.js. There is also a missing Content-Security-Policy directive. However, these are minor issues and have not impacted the overall grade of the malware scan above.

Lastly, I ran an online malware scan for the site torrentfunk.com with VirusTotal and one security vendor flagged the domain as suspicious. However, it was only 1 out of 93, which is likely a false positive. You can see the results of the scan here: VirusTotal scan for the site torrentfunk.com.

In conclusion, the site torrentfunk.com is a medium security risk because one of the malware scans returned with a 503 Service Unavailable scan failed issue. Browse this domain with caution.
