When researching a high school project on the guillotine, my daughter googled:
One of the top results was:
Apparently she clicked on that link from Google, and
- that page was opened in the browser
- another tab opened in the browser (Chrome on Windows) which looked sort of blue-screen-of-death-ish and opened a dialog saying that we had a virus and we should phone such-and-such a number (supposedly Microsoft support), while some audio played with a woman's voice telling us similar info.
I tried closing the browser tab, but was unable to do so. I was also unable to switch to the other tab.
I killed the Chrome task and shut down the computer.
Can anyone tell me what was going on, and if I should be scared about re-staring that computer?
