  1. Opened a site, this popped up as ad:

@eugenio, I thoroughly advise not to fall for such scammy phishing webpages. Not only they can harm your local data on device, steal your personal info, but also they often tend to contain exploits.

Speaking of Crashing, I did not face any issue on the link you provided above :slight_smile:

I usually disable JavaScript on browser before opening suspicious links to minimize the risk of exploit/crashes/errors :slight_smile:
