Hello Fellow EN Users,
First and foremost, thanks for all of your contributions here in the forum - I appreciate having such a valuable resource here!
I was wondering if I can get your opinion(s) on this behavior listed below, and answer a question.
Over the past number of weeks, I've been compiling a list of misc information in a particular note in Evernote Web (via Google Chrome on Win10). This has mostly included web links, and some information copied and pasted from various websites. I added a couple of new simple web links on Friday, and noticed some concerning behavior when returning back to the login screen this morning.
Since it was the last note modified, once I logged into Evernote Web, it defaulted to that note, however......There must have been some malicious code behind some of the webpage data I had copied and pasted (I'm guessing). The browser displayed my note for a couple of seconds, and then the page completely turned into a Google Chrome warning, informing me that a page/url was a phishing site. I screen recorded this behavior HERE. Since I had refreshed a couple of times to investigate, you can't see my page load up first here, as it immediately displays the Chrome warning. Seeing how the URL never actually changes from what appears to be the note's URL, it doesn't look like it tried to redirect, which is good. I'm guessing that Chrome was scanning the page data and found this URL somewhere in my note. My concern and question, is that I most certainly would not have posted a text url to this suspicious website (given it's URL name), so I'm guessing that there may have been some code behind / in the background of some of the websites that I copied and pasted. Or maybe I did copy/paste this specific link URL, but didn't notice it since it was copied/pasted with an entire webpage of images, data, links, etc.
Btw, I deleted the entire suspected note, and all is well again
Thanks so much!
