What happened?

I would, in this order:
1. Use your browser on smartphone and change password.
2. Check in the history what website I actually tried to login to. May very well be a phishing clone (hence the reasons for step 1).

Maybe I'm just overly paranoid, but that's what I would do.
I am just writing now from PC and as you see it works fine.

What was the exact URL you attempted to access from your PC? The domain name may contain some unicode characters that may at first glance appear to be identical to standard ASCII characters. If you can copy-paste the correct url and publish it within the [ code] tags, we should be able to determine whether it is a phishing website.

I'm guessing that it's bitcointalk(.)to; assuming it still exist. Back in the day I've used to look for Bitcointalk threads using the Google search query "Bitcointalk *insert topic here"; and there have been a good amount of times that the Bitcointalk(.)to version is what showed up on top of the results.

Nope, Bitcointalk.to doesn't work for few years already. But it might be other phishing websites - I guess there is plenty of such websites.
It would be interesting to know in what way OP tried to access Bitcointalk. If tried to do it through Google search results, it's very likely that it was phishing website.

Well there was this thread back in 2019 that listed some of the phishing sites- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5130480.0.
I thought that the "to" ones are like sort of mirror sites back then, but thankfully I never bothered logging into that one.
I can also confirm that most results are showing the "to" ones like what mk4 said, when I was trying to search for threads through Google search in my mobile phone.

I just saw that the domain was up for sale already. Cheesy

Always make sure you log in with the url bitcointalk.org and bookmark the site to prevent you from logging into cloned sites in the future. I also suggest that you don't save your password in the browser you are logged in to as it could jeopardize your account in the future if someone manages to access your PC.

Apart from that now you need to sign the message with bitcoin address (if you've never done it) and you also have to backup all data like seed, private key so that you can recover the account if one day the account is hacked. Don't ignore the security of your account and take appropriate steps to secure it.
