Is Watchasian.la Safe?
I conducted a series of malware tests to find out if watchasian.la 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 watchasian.la without any issues.
To check this further I ran malware scans with Malwarebytes and Spybot on my computer after browsing the site watchasian.la and they returned no malware detection. I also ran a system-wide scan with Microsoft Defender and no malware was found.
To confirm that the site is clean, I also checked the site watchasian.la on the online malware scanner Sucuri and it returned with outdated software detected (PHP under 7.4.6). You can see the same here: https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/watchasian.la
Sucuri says the site watchasian.la is running outdated software (PHP under 7.4.6) and subsequently grades it as a medium security risk. Sucuri says it didn’t find any malware on the site watchasian.la during its scan.
Some hardening improvements could also be made such as solving the missing security headers 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.
Missing Strict-Transport-Security security header.
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
Leaked PHP version. Your site is displaying your PHP version in the HTTP headers. Please set expose_php = Off.
However, these security headers don’t change the overall grade of the scan.
On a positive note, I can see that the site watchasian.la already uses a website firewall and isn’t blacklisted by any security vendor on the 9 blacklists checked.
I also ran a parasite scan with Unmask Parasites on the site watchasian.la and the page seems to be clean. You can see the same here: https://unmask.sucuri.net/security-report/?page=watchasian.la
Lastly, I ran a malware scan with VirusTotal on the domain watchasian.la and 1 out of 89 security vendors has flagged the domain as malicious. You can see the same here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/domain/watchasian.la
In conclusion, the site watchasian.la has outdated software (PHP under 7.4.6) and was graded as a medium security risk by Sucuri. Unmask Parasites says the site is clean. And 1 out of 98 security vendors associated with Sucuri and VirusTotal have flagged the domain as malicious. The one flag is likely a false positive as we have not found any other malware.
