I have heard online that simply visiting a website can infect a computer. I had an instance recently where someone I know sent me a link but misspelled it. The misspelled link lead to a malicious website.
The misspelled link was:
WARNING WEBSITE MIGHT BE MALICIOUS
Which is a misspelling of www.vassarstats.net
I went there three times, each going to separate websites (Note I've only included domains):
WARNING WEBSITES MIGHT BE MALICIOUS
http://briana.ttnrd.com/ http://iyfnzgb.com/ http://ww25.vassarstat.net/?z
I checked all on virus total and all came clean except
The results came as follows: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/ca060e0539d6866b634598b82bd0d64a82f8826779ec610a38e7939344ce398f/detection
For background information, I was using Google Chrome and had uBlock Origin installed. uBlock Origin gave the regular redirect warning however I thought the website was legit and ignored said warning. Once redirected, the website was completely blank. I'm guessing uBlock considered the content block-able or perhaps chrome blocked it. I am running macOS Big Sur. Chrome is up to date.
After the contact I ran Malwarebytes and checked Chrome for unusual activity (such as altered homepage, search engine, and extensions). Everything seemed normal.
Has my computer been comprised? What further steps should I take or have I done everything I should do?
