I recently went to a website that I didn't know was dodgy. It redirected in the same tab to somewhere and said '* YOUR COMPUTER HAS BEEN INFECTED ** Error etc etc call this number toll free etc etc. all on that tab webpage.
I closed that tab in firefox, was fine. closed other tabs in firefox, reopened, was fine. reset computer, opened firefox, no problems. So is this most likely just a scam with nothing bad downloaded in this case? eg no keyloggers etc?
Also, I viewed one of my older forum topics here before logging in, it said 2 guests are viewing. at one time it said 3 guests are viewing. A topic from months ago that has not been bumped and no one would be viewing basically.
So I picked a random forum post from here 2009 in search engine and viewed that, same thing, started out as 1 guest[me] and then refresh within 10seconds, it says 2 guests viewing this topic. Logged in, then 1 member, 3 guests. Refresh, 1 member, 2 guests. Is this normal on this forum or any forum? eg are there always 1 or 2 'guests' viewing even topics not bumped since 2009 or is that something wrong on my end? I refreshed after typing this to be sure, yep still says 1 member[me] and 2 guests viewing this topic.
