My question is; doesn't this mean I'm infected with something? Earlier today something got through. I had been frantically surfing and I thought Malwarebytes was blocking something legit because I'd just clicked on a link to bleepingcomputer, when the popup message happened so I cleared it as "okay". Anyway, suddenly there was a message in front of me, demanding information, including a credit card number. It came with a warning not to attempt to close the page or turn off the computer.
I immediately did a hard shutdown. That always seems to work. Everything is fine except I keep getting the popup messages from Malwarebytes and logs like the one I posted here are accumulating. There are several different domains. Is there something I need to do to disinfect?
