I scanned my machine (with the latest version of ClamAV) after looking at some images which were loaded from external sites and those sites seem to be dodgy hacking sites, and these were some of the results that I got about my Google Chrome cache:
/home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_009bb4: PUA.JS.Xored FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_00b45d: PUA.JS.Xored FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_00afd9: PUA.JS.Xored FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_00b45e: PUA.JS.Xored FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_00afdc: PUA.JS.Xored FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_00b353: PUA.Phishing.Bank FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_00b414: PUA.Phishing.Bank FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_000e30: PUA.JS.Xored FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_0071e4: PUA.JS.Xored FOUND /home/arthur-dent/.cache/google-chrome/Default/Cache/f_00b382: PUA.Phishing.Bank FOUND
Now, I often get the
PUA.JS.Xored so I'm not really worried about them, but never before have I got the
PUA.Phishing.Bank, so what are these and can they do any damage? I have cleared my cache and they seem to be gone now, but could they have done anything bad to my systems?
And yes, I have read this, but it wasn't much help for practical purposes: https://askubuntu.com/a/415146/364819
