Went over to VirusTotal to check on an alleged DOS-attack undertaken from -js.stripe.com via -m.stripe.network on the -www.unz.com website.

A rescan for the finalizing scan results was only available for privileged users,
so I launched an anonymous  search here:
https://packettotal.com/app/analysis?id=57809fff9e90ae7dc08403185cd44569&name=conn

What came us there were all Wireshark packed scans (connection and others)

Packettotal, quite nice resources,

Example: https://www.dshield.org/tools/dnslookup.html

Interesting in the light of this news: https://www.quad9.net/news/blog/an-update-to-the-quad9-and-sony-music-german-court-injunction-august-2022/

And these recommendations: https://bgr.com/guides/the-best-free-and-public-dns-servers-in-2022/

Issues like no security support for non-business users and/or no ad-blocking at Cloudflare's for instance could be serious considerations what DNS to choose. On windows one could use DNS Jumper v2 to change one's DNS on the fly.

TLS Checker with instant results to be found here: https://www.cdn77.com/tls-test

Moderate version 1.2. found to reside here: https://www.cdn77.com/tls-test/result?domain=forum.avast.com

Check also with otto for Chrome: no Tracking Scripts, no Data Stealing, no Malware, no Weak Security.

Also has a CSP designer on board, example:

default-src 'self' ; worker-src 'self' blob: ; script-src 'self' 'unsafe-eval' 'unsafe-inline'

Website scan sites to check on a potential phish:

https://easydmarc.com/tools/phishing-url   &   https://checkphishing.com/

In this case 5 vendors at VT also flag this as a PHISH:
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/a84de0bf2fb6d844449b6d785597b2cf5b28c178021632ba34b5e50df5e5f25f

while that website's IP is only being flagged by one instance here:
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/ip-address/155.94.143.206

while here all instances were given:
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/ip-address/155.94.143.206/relations

So we will look for ASN-QUADRANET-GLOBAL abuse at URLHAUS, cleantalk.org, ip.lookup.org.
VPN/TOR/Proxy: Likely (and also abuse) 4% online malware
-> https://www.ip-lookup.org/location/155.94.143.206/

You are being tracked inside your browser all over the Internet.
Do not feed data that you do not want to share with the world and land on all sort of desks.

Who is tracking you - a extension to see what goes on is the "Who is tracking me"-extension

Reporting here for instance on a website for a big national Dutch newspaper
38 instances of GStatics tracking, -googleapis.com and -privacy-centre.org

Disconnect extension only flags 3. Brave shield blocks 2,

We found one unhandled javascript error

All chromium-based browser may leak your local IP.

Test here: https://niespodd.github.io/webrtc-local-ip-leak/

Then this WebRTC Control extension will prevent leakage:

Tested my adblocking in the latest beta version of the Avast Secure Browser.

Likely you would like to test also, then go here: https://adblock-tester.com/
(made by matuhin dot ru) (P.S. your English seems fine to me).

Enjoy my friends,

By the way, I had the full 100 points out of 100:

This is the most common form of advertising and tracking on the internet. It’s very easy for website owners to set up. These services collect data about you in order to find the right advertisement for you.

These services monitor your actions on the site and collect information about you. They are needed only by the owner of the site, for the user it is only unnecessary requests and the code that needs to be executed. Unfortunately, blocking them sometimes can completely break the site.

This type of advertising is often used on large websites that sell ad space. It is difficult to block because it is difficult to distinguish between an advertising image and a regular image. Often the rules are written for each site separately, so this check is not entirely accurate. It only checks for the presence of keywords in the file path and the availability of Flash.

Unlike analytics tools, these services are used to track and measure errors on websites. Services monitor almost all user actions so that the error message is as complete as possible. Most often, if you turn these off, nothing will break.
