What Is TubeV.sex?
TubeV (tubev.sex) is a porn tube site. As of December 2022, the site tubev.sex gets an estimated 5.1 million monthly views, according to SimilarWeb. The Wayback Machine estimates tubev.sex was founded on November 17, 2016. I can see that it took about six months before tubev.sex started getting significant traffic, and its traffic peaked when the domain was between 1-2 years old. Since its traffic declined by roughly 60%, it has held steady since the beginning of 2019.
Is TubeV.sex Safe?
I conducted a series of malware tests to find out if 4tube.com 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 4tube.com without any issues.
To check this further I ran malware scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot on my computer after browsing the site 4tube.com and they returned no malware detection. I also ran a system-wide scan with Microsoft Defender and no malware was found.
To try to confirm that the site is clean, I also checked the site 4tube.com on the online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned with no issues. You can see the same here: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/tubev.sex
Sucuri says the site tubev.sex is a low security risk which is excellent. Sucuri says no malware was found during the scan. It also says no defacements, injected spam, or internal server errors were found, meaning Sucuri doesn’t think the site tubev.sex is malicious. Moreover, I can see that no security vendor associated with Sucuri has blacklisted the site which means they don’t think the site is malicious either.
Some things could be improved such as adding a website firewall to protect itself against DDoS attacks and general website hacks. Additionally, the site tubev.sex could solve several missing security headers that I have listed below:
Missing security header for ClickJacking Protection. Alternatively, you can use Content-Security-Policy: frame-ancestors ‘none’.
Missing security header to prevent Content Type sniffing. Affected pages:
Missing Strict-Transport-Security security header. 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
Default server banners displayed. Your site is displaying your web server default banners.
Lastly, I ran a malware scan with VirusTotal on the domain tubev.sex and 1 out of 88 security vendors has flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/domain/tubev.sex
You should always take note of a security vendor flagging a domain as malicious. That said, 1 out of 88 is a very low number and most likely means it is a false positive.
In conclusion, TubeV was flagged by 1 out of 88 security vendors on VirusTotal as malicious. That is a low number which likely means it is a false positive. When we couple that result with the Sucuri results, I’m very confident that it is likely a false positive as Sucury says the domain is a low security risk. Moreover, none of my malware scans run on my computer after browsing the site tubev.sex found malware either.
