If you’re thinking about what makes websites unsafe and therefore harmful to visit, we need to understand what factors make any website unsafe:
Malware is any type of software or mobile application that is specifically designed to harm any computer or mobile device that has that malware in it. Malware is software that steals user information without their consent and installs viruses. Sometimes when we download any file from the internet, we don’t realize it’s considered malware and we've compromised our personal information, so we need to check the website to see if it is safe before downloading any file.
If any website is hacked, even the website owner and visitors don’t know if any users visit hacked websites, which could be dangerous because of the chance to get phishing attacks and malware installed on your device by visiting hacked websites.
It's also considered web based malware because the unwanted web based software forces the user to switch from one webpage to another that the user doesn’t intend to visit, like you saw if you visited any website illegally for movies downloading or offering copyrighted softwares that ran malware advertisements that forced you to visit different pop-up ads on a website that could leak personal data. Most of these websites are unsafe to visit that use web based malware.
Social engineering is content that user trick to do dangerous stuff online like revealing personal information or downloading any software :
Type of social engineering;
In phishing any website, it tricks its users into revealing their personal information like passwords, mobile numbers, and ID numbers, and it does not look trustworthy like banks or government entities.
Sometimes hackers control innocent websites and drive social engineering.
If websites' content tries to trick users into doing something that they only do for trusted entities, like sharing passwords, calling tech support, downloading apps, and running pop-up ads that show viruses on your device, you need to install unwanted software.
A website running on behalf of some other entities without making any relation clear is also considered social engineering, just like any website run on behalf of charity organizations to collect donations on behalf of the charity organization without showing clear proof of a relation with the first-party charity organization.
Recently we saw a new way scammers operate: they make clones of any authentic website, like a bank video streaming service or cryptocurrency exchange. And trying to get personal information like bank details—like you received an email from a financial institution to update your details—when you open the website, it's the same as a clone of the original financial institution website; most people trust it, enter their information, and get scammed. or scammers send emails that seem It looks the same as a popular exchange; you won some coins when users opened the website; they thought it looked genuine, but it was the cloned website.
