Hi everyone. You may see this post twice but sorry. I originally posted as anon but because of moderation I didn't want to wait. Here we go.
So. I research a lot of random questions and today I googled one. I clicked on a forum that was discussing the answer to my question and as I’m scrolling down at the replies my phone tab suddenly switches to teen pornography. At this moment my phone tells me that the ‘download’ had downloaded. ????? Wtf
I immediately panic. There were no links that I clicked. There were no adverts on the page or anything. In my panic I press the back button several times but I’m just tunnelling through adverts and then a pop up comes up telling me my phone is locked and that I need to pay a fee to unlock it.
Then, a police notication comes up telling me I've been viewing illegal material. I click back several times and eventually close it. Now I’m freaked out and ****ing terrified. I thought about calling the police and pleading my innocence (I even screenshotted it all) but I did a google search and the same thing has happened to other people.
As for the download file I didnt even wanna open it so I didnt. I just deleted it but I'm ******** bricks cause I would never do such a thing. I actually wanna cry right now lolAttachment 521039Attachment 521039521041
Is it malware or legit? Again I dont know HOW THE HELL i got onto that porn site and now im so scared. HELP?
It's probably a compromised website trying to scare people and the file that downloaded could well be ransomware.
