I clicked on a Google Slides spoof link in an email in Yahoo mail in a Chrome browser. As soon as I had clicked it I realized my mistake. I did not enter any password or give away info. What are the possible consequences of such an attack? How do I proceed from here? Are there logs I can inspect to find out what the code on that webpage did?

  1. What are the possible consequences of such an attack?

As long as you don't provide/download anything in/from phishing link, risk of consequences is extremely low.

  1. How do I proceed from here?

If the email you received was generic phishing and you weren't targeted directly, I would not take any action.

  1. Are there logs I can inspect to find out what the code on that webpage did?

I'd recommend checking url in https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home/url and see if there is some information about "chrome CVE" in "Details" or "Community".

    Clicking links in a phishing email can do extraordinary damage. Reporting emails as phishing is a great thing to do instead of "nothing". Virustotal can give very limited results. The better option is to open the URL in a malware analysis sandbox, like cuckoo.ee.
