3 days ago, i googled how to do something, i forget what it was, but i found a link, and clicked it.
It redirected me to a plain ip site, that then constantly redirected me. causing chrome to freeze, i could do anything else on my comp, just not use chrome.
I managed to close it, and when i oped and went to history, it showed like 2 thousand different addresses, when it was only open for probably 3-4 mins cuz closing it took a while
i thought it was a bad link, but scanned with malwarebytes anyways, it found nothing. About an hour ago, i was googling a leveling guide for black desert online, and found one. it was top, and a website i've been on before, and it redirected me again to a website, that did the same thing, few screenshots of the history is attached.
the website that redirected me, i went back to and could go to it, so i don't think the website is compromised.
again, malware bytes found nothing, RKill found nothing, there are no chrome extensions i didn't add, the only things i've installed recently are games from the steam summer sale.
i googled each time, and all i found is the old popup scam. i could find nothing about this online.
as far as i can tell, its not doing anything bad, its just annoying.
if it happens again, ill try and get some screenshots of the webpage - first one was something about windows defender found the zeus virus, it can do this, call this number to get it removed, the 2nd one was just a white page, and a voice say once that something was detected.
since i found nothing online, and malware bytes detected nothing, i figured it could be a new virus, but i dont have the knowledge to make a call like that.
sorry if this isn't where something like this should go as well.
