Yep. Go to the provided link and....blank screen unless I allow scripts to run. Exactly the behaviour they raise as the ingress for the malware. I took a chance and enable scripts for their domain. They have a tool I can use to see if my modem has been compromised. Their link takes me to github where I'm expected to download and install some executable then download and run a Python script.

How do I know for sure that this isn't an elaborate hoax to get be infected?
