(Reposting from a recent blog at the suggestions of other members)
I was browsing Walmart.com when a file suddenly started downloading on my computer. It led me to a blank web page, and the recent downloads bar at the bottom (I use a Chromebook) disappeared. When I went to delete it from the rest of my files it said it was zero bytes. Should I be concerned about it being a virus/malware?
I did contact Walmart about it. As Chromebooks come with built-in virus protection, I haven't really found any apps to scan my computer to check it. I found some to check the url or file, but the suspicious link (I'm assuming it's a link?) is no longer working so it can't be scanned. (I accidentally clicked it again while trying to copy it from my history.)
My computer is still working fine, so I'm only really concerned about my identity or parents' credit card information being compromised; I went ahead and did a PayPal transaction yesterday.
