How safe is this website to use?

Posted on 15 March 2022 11:13 pm

 

Very. Partially due to how many fetish websites have fallen over time, MxM puts most of its energy into the security and longevity of its fetish community. This means your account, content, and the overall site itself is unusually well-protected for a fetish site - all done according to IT industry standards. 

 

Is it necessary, though? Very much so. MxM has seen a sharp increase in cyberattack attempts on our server. Now seems like a good time to share the lengths we go to keep the community safe.

 

Key Internet Vulnerabilities 

  • We are immune to the Ghostcat vulnerability
  • We are immune to the Heartbleed bug
  • We are immune to the SSLv3 POODLE vulnerability

 

Key Strengths

  • We have DDOS protections in place. DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) is when someone targets the server with enormous traffic in an attempt to overwhelm and take it offline. 
  • We employ SHA 256-bit RSA encryption for every device connection to our server. This encryption standard is effective and has not yet been compromised in any way. (Hackers attack websites via other means.) 
  • We employ multiple firewalls and they work well, fending off most cyberattacks while warning us if malicious code or activity is detected.
  • Our website runs on pure PHP code that was written from scratch - no dependency on libraries. This reduces the amount of weak points for bad actors to attack us. 

 

Key Community Protocols

  • Passwords must be 12 characters long, include a capital and lowercase letter AND a number or special character
  • Unusual Login Detection: If you login from a different device -or- location, the website will force you to verify it's you via confirmation code 
  • reCAPTCHA is enabled on our website for certain prompts that need protection from robot activity used to spam sites like ours.
  • Brute Force Protection: If a login attempt fails too many times, the attempting user is locked out by the system for a period of time.
  • A secure, encrypted connection to our server is enforced for every single user, every time

 

This article will be updated over time as our fetish community evolves and changes. Please reach out if you have a security concern - chances are we can address it in some way. I hope we've expressed how much we care about your privacy and the quality of your experience as an MxM member.
