Hello. I was on google images yesterday, and I clicked on a image preview. I didn't go to the actual website, just load the preview. I got a pop up asking for a authentication from some website (A username and password). I quickly used the task manager to kill the browser (Firefox) process. So, am I infected? I haven't noticed any odd behavior, and I'm not even sure if you can get infected this way. I can restore my pc from a backup I did the day before, if need be.

Thank you.
