[Bug 1391711] Re: Slow computer performance following recent update


I began using chromium and I thought my slow browser problems were over
but they began in it as well. I noticed leaving the computer on
overnight with open tabs causes to run much slower by morning. Today i
ran ClamTK and found over a dozen exploits, the same ones, recurring, in
both chromium and firefox, and while I can delete them or quarantine
them, it's only a short-term fix, they do come back. I'm quite certain
now that my system is being attacked and while their apps may/or may not
execute, my system performance is compromised/degraded. I would very
much like to learn how to remove this recurring infection.
