Do I have a malware addon?

Posted

I have Decentraleyes, Privacy Badger, Privacy Possum, UBlock origin, No Script, and Easy Youtube Video Downloader Express...

All of which are recommended add ons.

The other day I ended up with an issue where I was redirected to a "Prize" site. I have since wiped my drive and reloaded my OS... but I want to make sure this doesn't happen again.


So here's the story

I clicked on this website, and the first couple times I got this web page, which was different

from what I was supposed to get,

"game2674.goprzshere39.live/7261852386/?utm_campaign=QPF8euu28II5lw702iHhCugVqK5RzfdNsTpLaMM91qY1&t=main9............ etc",


and the 3rd time I got a warning from Ublock Origin about https://minently.com/RnSda/rDN#/ojdn/-nsy7qV12RbEJREofa... etc..... and then the fourth time I got the website which was https://occult-study.org/left-hand-path-and-right-hand-path/

Now I no longer get that bizarre site any longer (It said I made the 5

billionth search and won a prize and then my computer beeped), but WTF was that and why did it happen?

Here is the full link to what I initially got... it seems to change for some reason

That part with the slider is supposed to say that up above.

Most of those are fake ads. Don't bother with them.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for a good ad blocker.
