Hello Bleeping Computer Community,
This is my first time posting about a problem and I would appreciate your patience. To clarify:
I had the same experience as the original poster. I clicked on a streaming program link and an audio file and screen popped up indicating my credit cards, passwords, etc. were being sent over the internet. I shut off my computer in a panic.
I restarted my computer and was able to log onto the internet without a problem. I ran Panda Cloud Cleaner and eset online scanner and CCleaner and MBAM (some simultaneously). They found nothing.
Windows Defender had detected and quarantined "Ransom:JS/TechBrolo.A" on my computer. I deleted the Trojan.
I am using an ASUS tablet with Windows 8.1 and IE 11.
However, I am concerned that I might have been infected with something else as I am seeing "suggested links" in the menu below my address bar that I am certain did NOT appear before I clicked on the troublesome link; these new links include www.girlsgogames.com and www.gamefaqs.com
I can get rid of the links by going to Internet Options>Content>Autocomplete Settings>Address Bar>Suggested URLs
My questions is: should I worry about these suggested links (I am NOT being redirected) in the sense that they might indicate I was infected by something else, or should I just turn them off and not worry about them?
Thank you for any help/advice.
