Cracked dot com malware

Hi, this is my first time posting so not sure if I'm in the right place, but I've been attacked in the past and have recently read about malware on the humor website cracked(dot)com. At least, I think I've been attacked from there, as the last time I had an issue it started shortly after visiting the site. Now I've been hearing that the site installs malware when you go there. Does anyone else know about this?

Thanks for the tip, I'll do that to be sure! I was also wondering if this was a known source of malware, or if there's any info on the site being a threat.

I would block it network wide just to be sure. Many routers have ability to block sites in thier firewalls. My Amped router and my Meraki AP both have those.

Why as BrightCloud shows it to be fine and clean?

Interesting. Is it possible the trojan is getting released through an ad and wouldn't be picked up by BrightCloud? Or just a fluke?

 

In any case, thanks for the input everyone!

Without seeing full scan logs it's hard to say you have anything also the Identity Shield is designed to stop such things when browsing but it's always good to contact support for a check up to be fully sure.
