Are you using Chrome?
Never.
A colleague and I spent the better part of three days uninstalling Chrome, so that the infected computer could do emails again.  I have been very careful to watch those add-ons when installing other software that carries Chrome with it.

Occasionally..

It now tells you if your username and passwords have been breached. The warning it displays sounds like the one that you received.

Are you using Chrome?
Never.

Sounds like he knew exactly what he was doing if it took 3 days to install a browser....

It was referring to this site, this was my concern.

We were uninstalling, as it takes maybe 2 minutes to install, but uninstalling finding all the links and files that point to Chrome was a bother.
