TLDR trying to learn about market structures. Was given a link by a friend, which I opened in Mozilla Firefox: anonfiles . com
The second I clicked in to download the file, Kaspersky flagged 8-10 unauthorized downloads and blocked them all. They were all labelled to be coming from “baconaces . pro” which is a hotbed for malware according to VirusTotal ([https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/5298a7c6430d4caf6059cc40f3b9ed0c67f4b4148f842f876636686539325873/detection](https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/5298a7c6430d4caf6059cc40f3b9ed0c67f4b4148f842f876636686539325873/detection)) There was one result originating from “facesnotebook . com” as well.
My firefox browser became extremely laggy shortly after. Additionally, whenever I opened firefox, kaspersky immediately flagged the same 8-10 unauthorized downloads again. I don’t know how the downloads are still being attempted despite having closed the webpage (anonfiles . com was closed).
I have since uninstalled firefox. What can I do to deal with this?
