I was in a video chat on a website. Somebody posted a link and I clicked on it. My browser closed down. When I Firefox backup I had to login to all of my accounts. But before I did this I figured I would play it safe and clear all my browsers data. I took a step further and fired up a terminal and issued the following commands.
sudo yum remove firefox -y
sudo yum install firefox -y
After I did all of this I contact the person asking what he did. He said he hooked my browser. I've never heard of this. But I'm assuming he has something that wraps around my browser or hooks onto my system to gain info.
Is there anything I can do to make sure that I'm safe from what ever crap happened to me?
