Unsure whether system infected or not.
« on: February 14, 2023, 09:22:55 PM »
After accidentally purchasing a steam account instead of a key on g2a I visitted the email website in order to change linked email on steam. The website name was At first I was a bit sceptical as the website was not secured (no lock) but after visitting it again the lock appeared. I did what I wanted and left the website. Yesterday I got a notification from google that I was logged off my oc as it may have gotten infected by malware. I did a boot scan both in defender as well as avast (had to choose the non winre option as the regular would get stuck on loding avast). Neither of them found anything. Similar to malware bytes. The suggested step reports are attached. Is there a possibility my machine got infected/should I be concerned about it? Do I need to do a factory reset?

Thanks in advance for any help.

This information here is not encouraging:  (alo 52you dot online)

Neither are the vulnerabilities mentioned here:
at this Singapore address. Anycast not installed there for instance.

Avast Online Security gives the site as OK - but it is not secure, Login is insecure.
You should not share personal data there. Did you perform an Adw. Cleaner scan?

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
