For the past day or two whenever I use Chromium, I periodically get an opening search page from snapdo.com, which I have researched is malware that affects browsers. I had begun to synchronize Chromium users (source of the problem?). This does not happen in Firefox.
1. How do clean it?
2. What, if any, antivirus/antimalware is recommended?
3. Is Linux finally getting enough attention to attract hackers?
