I know this is a duplicate question, but there aren't any recent updates on the answers given to this question(here and here) and after a few years, I'm sure browser security has improved drastically. I was wondering if it's still possible for a user to get a virus by just visiting a malicious website?
Say if you accidentally click a google search result and quickly close the page would it be possible for an attacker to put any malicious script in your browser? For example, https://ytmp3.cc/youtube-to-mp3/ (a youtube video to mp3 converter), isn't malicious but it does redirect you to other sketchy websites when you are prompted to download the converted file. The browser extensions and executables prompted to be downloaded on redirected websites are malicious.
