    TLDW: Streamer clicked malicious link, unknowingly got hacked and was being watched for a month.

    Is this still a prevalent thing? If so how do I prevent it?

    Yes, malicious links still exist.

    You prevent it by not clicking on links sent to you by people you don’t know or trust. Also, keep your software (browser, AV, etc.) up to date.

    99% of hacks not targeted at a nation state can be prevented by common sense. Don’t click the link. Don’t download the file.
