I mistyped an URL into chrome and it redirected me to the site: oscrashed.xyz
It appeared to be the typical scam site that asks you to call a number to get your computer unlocked or cleaned of viruses. But after a while, it causes my entire system to freeze (not just chrome).
I had to do a hard reboot to get control back. I launched system monitor, and visited the website again, with the process ID in mind in order to stop chrome from the shell. It appears that the site just uses 100% of the CPU, but I still managed to send the kill -STOP signal to chrome; despite that, the computer still froze after a few seconds.
I don't have the skill set to investigate how the website accomplishes this. Can someone take a look at it, or point me to the right direction on how to look into this?
I'm running Linux (Centos 7.2)
