Question for the more tech savvy among us: I joined one of the Discord channels that David Schwartz posted about last night. In one of the chats a guy posted a link to a Google Doc of upcoming ICOs. I clicked on it and after when I went to log in to one of my exchanges I got a safety warning from my computer (Mac) which hasn't happened before. I think the warning was about that the site might not be private (I can't remember exactly). Obviously I did not proceed to be log-on. I also realise this might just be a coincidence. Anyone have any knowledge about how secure Google Docs are? I assume they can be used to phish too but not certain. How do I clean my Mac? I realise these might be naive questions, but can't be too sure when it comes to zerps (and other cryptos).

This was the ad that appeared on a "gatehub" Google search: And this is what the site looks like: I'm pretty sure most people won't fall for this, but it's good to keep an eye out on these types of scams.
