happened 2 times in 2 days. going to link on google for passwords extensions for FF 57--got the 1st picture. I'm a winner. Take survey for a chance to win $1000 on amazon. Both times I backed out. Back at google search page, selected exact same link again, (FF 57 password extension search), 2nd hit (exact same link) I went to the site in the 2nd picture.

What do you think, trying to install a hijack ransomware file capture take control of my computer on me?
