Hey -- I'm probably in the clear, but I visited a browser locker site (fake virus site) on accident recently and I want to make sure it hasn't dropped anything on my system.


Things I've done so far:

  • Quick scanned with Malwarebytes 3.0 Free (returned clean)
  • Quick scanned with Avast Free (returned clean)
  • I'm currently scanning my system with ESET online scanner but it hasn't finished scanning yet

The URL in question is 50059505995098448855(dot)pw, if you want to check the source.


It tries to throw up Chrome messages, hide your cursor and replace it with a GIF of a cursor, and show a fake BSOD. If I can get a reply soon that would be cool. Thanks!!


I am on Windows 10 Anniversary Update 64-bit with Chrome 56 (the latest version as of this posting).
