Yesterday my network speed started crashing and my ping times went up to 500ms using Speedtest.net
I assumed that my ISP was throttling me and I went on the phone this morning to see if I could flush them out.
They put me through all the paces of rebooting modems etc.
Then they asked me to clear my Chrome cache.
I of course rolled my eyes, thinking how it wouldn't matter.
Surprisingly, after I cleared it, my speed -- of my entire network, all devices -- went up to normal and my ping time went down by a factor of 10!
What kind of malware would be in my Chrome cache that could be causing so much difficulty and what could it have been up to?!
