Hi guys
I often times just google bitcointalk + whatever coin to easily get to the page of a bounty i wana follow up on. I found a fake one  called bitcointalk .to . Does anyone know if this one downloads malware to your pc or anything ?

I didnt enter my credentials there or anything at least.

Yes, it is a pishing site, grabbing credentials. It was already discussed in this thread.

Thought as much, I got my home router configured as a half firewall and my PCs firewall configured configured with default deny all..  What are the odds of this having downloaded something nasty to my pc ?
I am normally very vigilant for phishing sites so this is actually my first time ever clicking on one. Kind feeling uneasy now

Yes. That's a fake version of BitcoinTalk, so don't try to login with it (the captcha isn't even working, so falling for this is pretty hard).

This prevents accidentally accessing it (ty Loyce):
I totally fell for the cloned site, ~
I have added this line to /etc/hosts
Code:
127.0.0.1       bitcointalk.to
Now my computer can't access that phishing site anymore.

You are a serial sockpuppeteer and scammer[1]. Please don't talk like you care about this forum or its users.

Perfectly resemble our forum. These information needs to be bumped quite often so that new comers will come to know about this and make themselves secure staying away from the phising site. In this way entering the wrong site several users might have lost their access to the real forum.

Bumping this is only going to help with this site though, every few months a few others pop up. In fact you only have to go back a couple of pages in the this section to find another site trying the exact same thing. The best thing to do is report it as a phishing site.

People just need to keep checking the ip address throughly, especially when logging in.

No, I don't think, that you must be worried now, if you don't have a warning. I went to the site (of course without login) and have no warnings by my security programs. But I would recommend to delete browser data (cookies, cache etc) and run virus scan.
