The last week or so, when I opened up Opera, I would get a security warning concerning a website it blocked named laqur.check-stat.com. I checked online but couldn’t find out much about the site. I went to the Opera forum to see what other info I could find out. It was suggested it might be an extension that I have installed that might be trying to connect to the site in question.
I could disable all the extensions and enable them one by one and try to isolate the culprit but that sounded very time-consuming, so that would be Plan B. I decided on Plan A first– check the Avast logs and hope it had logged the event and the main suspect.
I checked Avast for any logs but couldn’t find anything that referenced it. I opened Opera and the warning message popped up. I noticed the option on the warning message to See details. I didn’t pay attention to this at first. So I clicked on it.
Sure enough, when the details panel opened underneath, it clearly stated the culprit was the Video Downloader For Facebook. I have no intentions of dumping this downloader right now, so until I come across a better extension, I’m going to keep using it and let Avast do its job.
