Last night I stupidly clicked on two dropbox phishing emails, one is a sharing notification and the other says my password has expired. I do recall possibly signing up for dropbox a looong time ago so I thought it was legitimate. Here's the screenshot of both emails: http://puu.sh/iWMuO/3632544aec.png and http://puu.sh/iWMBC/53d6e42a1b.png
The button links to goo.gl[slash]MDTUNb (discovered in hindsight) and the actual page directed to was not dropbox.com but I can't remember the address. After seeing that it was not dropbox.com I closed the page, but shortly after that I noticed my Avast was disabled! It was saying the Avast service was stopped and had a button to "fix it" and "start", which I clicked a few times before Avast service was resumed. All this was right after turning on my computer so I'm not sure if Avast just didn't start properly or somehow the phishing link was able to disable Avast?
I did a boot time scan with Avast right away and that found nothing. Then updated and scanned with Malwarebytes which also found nothing. This morning I reported the shortened url to Google safe browsing. And by this point, the person who supposedly shared the folder with me told me he doesn't even use dropbox. I'm not sure if I'm okay to continue using my computer or has it been compromised? I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox 39.0.
Thanks so much for any help!
