I am one of those paranoid antivirus people. I have been on keepvid.com in the past and used the applet. I came accross someone saying there could be malware on the site. I have cleared java applets, reinstalled the JRE, ran TSSDkiller, NPE, and all the available scans in kaspersky.

Am I safe?

Does anyone know if I am being paranoid about nothing?

Please help for my sanity's sake!

Thanks for reading, and perhaps for helping.

Yes it's 100% safe, but now keepvid.com is shutdown. Peoples are most using keepvid alternative site of https://www.keepvid.site/. This is also safe and using easily. It's use for youtube video downoads and 1000+ sites.

Yes it's 100% safe, but now keepvid.com is shutdown. 

 

Says to me that host is up @ 159.8.220.42 so not sure why you would say its down?

 

Open ports list as:

53/tcp (domain) running a service called xxx xxx

443/tcp (https) running a service called xxxxxxx httpd (same supported requests as port 80)

21/tcp (ftp) running a service xxxxxxx version x.x.xrc2

80/tcp (http) the web server is running xxxxxxx httpd version x.x.2 (supported requests are GET, POST and HEAD)

 

I have replaced the service names and versions with 'xxx' to protect the site from further exploitation.

This fingerprinting info was not hard to find.

 

Further investigation reveals 2 critical open ports that also list services and versions which i wont mention here for the sake of this sites security.

 

All remaining ports seem filtered behind a Firewall.

 

The web server is Unix based running Ubuntu x.xx

 

I would not list this site as 100% safe and realistically seems possibly open to exploitation/malicious script, if it were desired but lets face it, its a vid sharing site and not a Crypto exchange.

 

Also, not a good look revising such an old thread with your first post!

  :wink:
